Classroom Guidelines

Agreement on Guidelines for Classroom Copying in Not-for-Profit Educational Institutions with Respect to Books and Periodicals 

The House Judiciary Subcommittee realized in 1975 that there would be many questions surrounding fair use in educational situations. Classroom guidelines were discussed over a ten year period between 1967 and 1975. The final version was agreed upon by a group of teachers, the NEA and publishers. The Guidelines focus specifically on photocopying of books and periodicals for use in classroom settings. These Guidelines are "meant to state the minimum and not the maximum standards." "They are not intended to limit the types of copying permitted under the standards of fair use." (Copyright Office Circular 21)
