In support of MSOE educational and academic activities, the MSOE library will attempt to obtain copies of requested standards for current students and current employees of MSOE. Students and employees should be aware that a standard is typically a form of intellectual property that is protected by U.S. and international copyright laws. The MSOE library maintains records of all MSOE students and employees who obtain a copy of a standard from the library. In requesting a standard from the MSOE library, all MSOE students and employees agree to comply with all copyright and licensing requirements associated with the standard. Upon request, library personnel will apprise students and employees of any copyright, licensing, and other restrictions that may apply to specific standards.
