Remember that you are not the copyright police. You have to do your best to inform the student of their responsibilities, but it is ultimately their responsibility not to violate the law.

It would be the same if the student checks a book out of the library then makes copies of the book before returning it. The library is not responsible for the student's actions.

Subject: [Athen] Alternate Text for book rentals?

Hello ATHEN!

For students who rent their books for a semester and need alternate texts, have you given PDF files to them as per their accommodations? I feel there is the worry that they could steal the book by copying and pasting it the digital book file while they are renting the physical book during any given semester. How have you handled this in the past?
