Maureen,

Our IT department on campus, which actually does the digital conversion,
does NOT digitize ANY of our library's films, videos or dvds unless they
come directly from library staff. They were made aware that digitizing
library media titles was going against copyright unless we had obtained
permission to do so. Perhaps you already provide this permission when
the faculty check out items, but unless 'someone' obtains permission
there may be issues of not being copyright compliant. Now, if a faculty
member takes their own personal copy to the IT department to digitize,
we are out the loop, and it affects IT and the faculty member if
copyright compliance detectives come calling.

We keep notes in our online catalog records for titles which we have
obtained permission/licenses to video stream, etc. If it cannot be
converted, a note such as "For home and classroom use only" are added.

As for actual numbers, our IT department would probably have those. Do
you have an IT department that handles conversion for the campus? They
might have those numbers for you.

It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
