For the first time, a library requested that we scan an entire issue of National Geographic through interlibrary Loan.  Is this a copyright violation? 

I know with books a conservative allowance for book scanning is 10% or 1 chapter.  Does anyone know what the copyright restrictions are for scanning journals?  I'm thinking 1 article.

Also, a staff member was wondering if you could legally send bound journals through the mail for ILL as you can books.  I don't think we'd do this as our journals are in-library use only, but it was an interesting question to consider.

Thank you,
