Actually I have to print a lot of pages(4 to 5 chapters)  and I don't think that would be possible in the library. Which is why I was confused whether it is okay if take the book to the nearest printing shop during the two hours. Because der is only one copy available and that too in the open access. ☺️

Hi Anushree

you need to be careful copying parts of a book. Copyright law in Australia states that you are only permitted to copy one chapter of a book, or 10%, whichever is greater.
