Hello,

I supervise the media section at the California State University
Northridge Library where we serve a large number of deaf and hard of
hearing students. We received grant funding to make closed captioned
versions of library videotapes used in the classroom when there is not a
CC version available. I would like to use the following procedure and I
hope it will follow Fair Use guidelines while accommodating our deaf
students.

1. When professors with deaf students request a library videotape to
use in their class, and there is not a CC version available from the
distributor, we will make one closed captioned version to loan.
2. We will then retire the original videotape and only circulate the
one CC version.

I am hoping we have enough safeguards to fall under Fair Use. I would
be interested in your opinions.

Thanks,
Dean
