Some distributors stipulate that media "may not be sold, lent,
transferred, leased or subleased to any institution or individual"
without prior written consent in their licensing agreement (quoted
directly from an Electronic Arts Intermix agreement) We've got a
handful of videos with this type of restriction. I don't believe we ILL
videos yet, but there has been some serious talk about doing so.

I'm curious which materials or in which situations materials cannot be
loaned due to copyright restrictions? I am trying to think of a
scenario where that would be the case, but can't think of much (other
than if something were a copy made in digital format of an unpublished
film for preservation or access purposes, or a digital copy that was
made of a film due to it having been lost, damaged, deteriorating,
stolen or on an obsolete format and not available in an unused format at
a reasonable price). Are there other copyright restrictions for media
(that would influence ILL) that I don't know about?

We loan--selectively, very selectively--to other UC campuses only (at
the request of either faculty or students). period. By policy,
loaned materials must be used in the media center/library of the
borrowing library (although I have a feeling that a fair amount of
stuff we loan goes to campus classrooms).

We do not loan:

1. Materials that are in regular or high demand for use in
connection with scheduled classes or ongoing research, including
those materials on reserve.

2. Materials that are rare, unique, very expensive, or too fragile
to put at risk through interlibrary loan, or difficult or impossible
to replace because they are no longer available in the marketplace.

3. Materials that have special restrictions to use on the campus,
i.e., materials that do not circulate at all on the campus (except
perhaps for faculty or classroom use). For example, reference works
and other kinds of materials which need to be readily accessible for
consultation at the library.

4. Materials that are not eligible for interlibrary because of
copyright or licensing restrictions.
