Is it legal to copy material that is copyrighted in order to make the print accessible to low-vision or blind patrons?
There are exemptions to the copyright laws that allow for reproduction of purchased materials into alternate formats for use by people with print disabilities. Any material copied for this purpose must not be sold. It is important to make the material available only to the student requesting it and not freely available as on a web page.
