Subject: Photocopying replacement pages

Photocopying replacement pages

From: James W. Mason <masonjw>
Date: Friday, April 17, 1992
Patricia Palmer and now Regina Sinclair have asked about copied
replacement pages and copyright.  Our serials person made a face when I
told her this was going out over e-mail, but here goes.  If the pages
are being tipped-in, I limit the number to five to avoid possible
damage.  If the pages to be copied are in a volume with too-narrow
margins or which is brittle, I try to get another copy or just forego
replacing the pages.

We have copied entire issues of journals and, very rarely, entire books.
If an issue is missing at the time for binding, we try to buy the issue.
If the issue is not available and the bibliographer has required that
the title be bound complete (a Bd3 in our lingo), we interlibrary loan
the issue and copy it.  Entire books have been copied but very rarely,
only if no longer available and at a teaching faculty member's
insistence.  The same standards to avoid damage when copying pages also
apply when copying entire issues or books.
