Copyright Considerations

There are legal guidelines to follow when using video in your classroom.

For information on using copyrighted film in classroom and distance learning/online teaching, please see the Teaching and Copyright page


Search for Library-Owned Media

Using the Library's Advanced Search, set the Material Type to "Audio Visual" and Search Scope to "Books, Media, & More"

Enter keywords or change search parameter from "Any" to "Title" or "Subject"

Further refine search results by choosing "Full Text Online" for online video or "Available in the Library" for physical copies.



Copyright law does not allow the transfer of formats (e.g. tape to DVD) without permission of the copyright holder, EXCEPT for the limited provisions of Section 108 of the copyright law (see http://www.section108.gov/about.html).

Section 108 allows replacement copies to be made by libraries and archives in cases where a title is at physical risk of deterioration, or is in an obsolete format, AND the title is not available for replacement at fair market prices. There are strict stipulations about the use and users of such replacement copies--most notably, the copy must be used within the confines of the library only.

There is no provision in Section 108 for individuals to make DVD copies of copyrighted tapes that they own.

Please contact your Subject Specialist with any questions.
