Abstract
The copyright law is the greatest legal tool for promoting access to knowledge and information by striking a balance between owners rights and users rights. For libraries, copyright limitations and exceptions are critical to meeting our missions to support learning and research, promote the flow of information, provide equitable access to information to the public, preserve intellectual and cultural heritage. Based on these reasons, this study analysed the limitation of copyright law of Korea for library, suggested improvement of reproduction for the library preservation and distribution including rental and lending, printout and transmission of internet information resources, copy of library materials which are rarely available through normal trade channel and government publications, reproduction and electronic transmission for persons with disabilities, and proposed fair use model(limitations on exclusive rights) for libraries.
