   Summation: Prof. Shelley Warwick, Baruch College Library / CUNY

The fair use provisions of copyright law recognize the special
needs of libraries and educational institutions to make use of
copyrighted materials. The struggle to maintain the fair use
provisions of copyright law aims to maintain that balance between
rights holders and libraries and educational institutions that
promotes excellence in our creative endeavors.
