Terms of the Agreement

The Health Sciences Library provides LOANSOME DOC services Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Requests made on weekends and University holidays will be processed the following workday.

  1. I agree to keep the Health Sciences Library’s Library Identification number in confidence. The Health Sciences Library’s LIBID will be supplied to you upon receipt of this contract.
  2. I agree to abide by the U.S. Copyright Law and Fair Use Guidelines:
    The requested photocopy will not be used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research. If I make a request for, or later use, a photocopy for purposes in excess of “fair use,” I may be liable for copyright infringement. The Health Sciences Library reserves the right to refuse service when requests violate copyright restrictions
  3. If a request is not owned by a UNC library, I agree to pay a $10.00 order fee to obtain it from another institution.
  4. RUSH handling of any type includes an additional charge of $5.00 ($10.00 for-profit organizations). I agree to pay any additional rush fee when it is incurred. A note that it is a Rush request must be put in the Notes field of the request.
  5. To CANCEL a request, I will immediately call (919) 966-4998 with the request number. I understand that I may not be able to avoid fees and charges if the request has already been processed or filled.
  6. I agree to pay the Health Sciences Library’s invoice within 45 days from the date of distribution and realize that failure to do so may result in the suspension of this and other library services. I understand that the Health Sciences Library will provide 30 days’ notice if fees change.


The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, US Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be “used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.” If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of “fair use,” that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law. (37 C.F.R. 201.14)
