These Regulations revoke and replace the Copyright (Libraries) Regulations 1957, which were made under the Copyright Act 1956 (c. 74) (now repealed). These Regulations prescribe the descriptions of libraries and archives which may, subject to the prescribed conditions, make and supply copies of copyright works to persons for the purposes of research or private study or to other libraries or archives requiring copies of such works for reference purposes or to replace lost or damaged items in their permanent collection where it is not reasonably practicable to purchase the items. A person requesting copies of copyright works must deliver a signed declaration to the librarian or archivist to the effect that he requires them for research or private study and, in the case of a request for a copy of an article in a periodical or of a part of a published work, that his requirement for the same is not related to any similar requirement of another person.
Regulation 3 prescribes the descriptions of libraries and archives which may be supplied with copies of material by a prescribed library or archive.
