Help Guides for Federal Regulations

Research guides created by librarians, government agencies or professional groups can help a researcher understand the mechanics of a resource. 


Administrative regulations for copyright are found in Title 37 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).  The regulations are available on a number of open access sites via the Internet as well as being posted on the major legal databases.  Listed below is a selection of resources.
