use of other libraries' videos for classroom showings
- March 14, 2005 @ 2:51pmthovekamp says:Our library belongs to a consortium of academic libraries that share resources within its membership. One of the types of resources we share is videos. Instructors are able to requests these AV materials through the consortium's catalog and often use these videos for classroom showings. Is it a violation of copyright to use other libraries' AV materials for classroom use?

If you're talking about ordering digital video and streaming it or otherwise making it available digitally, or if the originating library is copying the video for you, you have different considerations. The classroom showings is probably okay- if it's a face to face course. What is the situation?
