Using Videos and DVDs

The Library purchases videos and DVDs, and also subscribes to a number of different streaming services. The Library generally purchases extended rights, but each company has their own license requirements. When Library videos are used beyond the scope of Fair Use or the TEACH Act (which encompasses in-person, classroom use), special permissions may be required. Personal videos or videos acquired by individuals do not include rights such as public showings (i.e., showing to a group, whether for free or not, and whether or not access is restricted).

Below are links to the Terms of Use for the various video/DVD resources available through the library. If you seek to use non-library materials for public display you must also seek permission from the copyright holder or distributer. Please note that obtaining streaming rights is a process that can take up to four weeks. Therefore, faculty and staff are encouraged to plan accordingly.
