Certainly many libraries (including that of the University of Leeds) were pretty lax about copyright infringements until about a decade ago when the Copyright Licensing Agency started flexing its muscles. And "the librarian" may have been an unqualified assistant, but alarm bells could easily have rung further up the hierarchy when the "book" was presented for cataloguing.
