These guidelines are designed to assist NUS Libraries' authorised users on the appropriate copying of Library materials within the provision of Singapore Copyright Law.
The following limits on the copying or reproduction of any Work for the purpose of research or study must be strictly observed:
Where the copying or reproduction of a Work is not for the purpose of research or study but for other purposes of criticism or review; reporting of current events; judicial proceedings or report of judicial proceedings; or seeking professional advice from – or giving professional advice by – an advocate and solicitor, it is the responsibility of the authorised users to ensure that their dealings with the Collection are fair in all circumstances and for all purposes
The Library reserves the right to refuse to make any copies of any Works from the Collection for the authorised users as well as to prohibit these users from making copies of any Works from the Collection, as it deems fit.
It is strictly prohibited to remove or alter the rights management information (RMI) relating to a Work or to undertake any act or provide any device, product or component to circumvent a technological measure which controls access to a Work.
In addition to observation of these Guidelines, authorised users are also responsible personally for ensuring observation of all applicable copyright laws in respect of a Work in any form, whether such Work is from the Collection or not. Where these Guidelines
are in conflict with any applicable copyright laws, the latter shall supersede the former.
Copyright is a serious matter and any failure to observe these Guidelines and copyright laws may expose you to criminal and civil liability.
NUS Libraries reserves the right to take appropriate action against Members who contravene any part of these Rules.
