Hi, Monique.

Here are the list of distributors from whom I've purchased digital
rights this past year. Each contract had somewhat different requirements
but in general, here are the terms:

Direct Cinema
License for one semester to digitize our own materials

Filmmakers Library
License for one year to digitize our own materials

Berkeley Media LLC
License for two years to digitize our own materials

Documentary Educational Resources
License for one year to digitize our own materials

Carousel Film and Video
License in perpetuity to digitize our own materials

Films Media Group
Options you've already mentioned. We are opting to license in
perpetuity to digitize our own materials.

Has anyone put together a growing list of film distributors who
on-demand streaming, or the digital right to encode films owned by the
media center and/or library? I know you can get this information when
you register for the National Media Market, but the specifics aren't
included i.e., license agreement loans for 1, 3, 5 years, etc. I'm
interested in Broadcast rights via closed circuit.

I'm trying to create an internal list that will include the name of
company, and the types of digital access available, especially for
asynchronous streaming.

Feel free to contact me off-line if you wish, or I'm willing to work
with someone to create the list and have it published in a
