The school library has a copy of the DVD, but only checks it out for 3 weeks. To ensure that the work is available for the face2face class sessions, the media dept is asked to make a copy for use during the course period, which will be returned and destroyed after the course.

You can always try asking for permission for this or for streaming rights.
