Library Services FAQ
  
WHERE will LIBRARY SERVICES be during renovation?
The 24/7 computer lab is moving to Neff and that space at the entrance to the Library will become the Library Services Center.  We'll be open 7 days/week to answer questions and provide resources.
  • Stop in to request Reserves and to pick-up books or DVDs from our collection or from another library; check out a laptop or iPad, have a research consultation, or Ask-a-Librarian
How will I get BOOKS from the library?
You'll fill out a simple request form; we'll don a hardhat and retrieve it from the stacks.  You should be able to pick it up within 24 hours (or faster with a Rush request).

How about iPads and LAPTOPS?
You will still be able to check them out from the 1st floor Library Services Center.

How about student COMPUTERS?
There will be a new 24/7 study/computer lab for students on the first floor of Neff.  Many other open student labs on campus will still be available. See the list at  https://www.ipfw.edu/offices/its/resources/facilities/student-labs.html

Where will I find STUDY SPACES?
  • Many tables, chairs and whiteboards from the library will be moving to the bridge and to Walb
  • See Inside IPFW's post about other great spots on campus

Where are the LIBRARIANS?
We've dispersed across campus to department offices where we're closer to both students and faculty.  During the renovation, you'll find a librarian in the Library Services Center every day with evening and weekend hours, too.  And we're online at Ask-a-Librarian.


Will the Library's 4th floor COMPUTER CLASSROOM be available?
The classroom will be unavailable during renovation but there are other teaching classrooms on campus which may be used.

Google Books Wins Again in Court
  
For 10 years, the Authors Guild has been pursuing a legal case against Google's massive book scanning project, claiming infringement of author and publisher copyright.  On October 16th, the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously affirmed the judgment in Google's favor and rejected the Authors Guild appeal of the dismissal of the lawsuit by U.S. Circuit Judge Denny Chin in 2013.

In summary, the Court ruled:
  1. Google's unauthorized digitizing of copyright-protected works, creation of a search functionality, and display of snippets from those works are non-infringing fair uses.  The purpose of the copying is highly transformative, the public display of text is limited, and the revelations do not provide a significant market substitute for the protected aspects of the originals.  Google's commercial nature and profit motivation do not justify denial of fair use.
  2. Google's provision of digitized copies to the libraries that supplied the books, on the understanding that the libraries will use the copies in a manner consistent with the copyright law, also does not constitute infringement.

Authors Guild v. Google, Inc., U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, Case 13-4839-cv, document 230-1 located at: https://www.unitedstatescourts.org/federal/ca2/13-4829/230-0.html.


This ruling demonstrates that Title 17, Section 107, Fair Use is the standard by which all uses of copyrighted material must be judged, and that all four factors have equal weight and must be considered as a whole.  So a strictly educational use is not a guarantee of fair use, nor a commercial use necessarily a determination against fair use.
