Fair Dealing

Under the The University of Winnipeg Fair Dealing Guidelines, patrons may only request excerpts for the purposes of research, private study, criticism, review, news reporting, education, satire, or parody. The amount of the excerpt may not exceed:

  • One journal article per issue
  • One chapter or 10% of a book

Please note that individuals cannot make multiple requests for the same source material if the total amount of the requests exceeds the fair dealing limitations.
