Accommodating Students with Disabilities

Looking for some wisdom:

Our Anthropology Department offers an online course called "World Cultures through Film". There are roughly 200 students enrolled each semester and each student is required to come to the Media Library to view approximately 15 films. One of the students has Tourette's Syndrome. She lives about fifty miles away and had been relying on family members for transportation to campus. Both her mother and husband recently became ill and can no longer drive her. She has asked the professor who teaches this course if she can have copies made of the films and destroy them when she's finished. Is there some provision in the law that I'm unaware of that would allow for this? Is there ANY other way we can accommodate her?

Thank you!
