That's good advice as a place to start, but be aware that textbook
publishers rarely own the content included in their video ancillaries.
Unless they have specifically licensed online usage, they'll kick the
request back to the applicant or sometimes forward it to the licensor.
Many of them have largely abandoned DVD as a medium anyway in favor of
streaming, and the local publisher sales rep would know if there's an
online version available.

I suggest she contact the textbook company's permission dept.They
probably have a form to fill out to request putting the case study
online. Since the book is being used and the site is limited to the
students in the course, they will probably say yes with no charge.


Language labs do this all the time.... and the form for some textbook
companies implies that they expect this kind of request.

I just had a faculty member ask if she could use a portion of the DVD
that came with the instructor's copy of the textbook for her online
class. She normally shows portions of the material from the DVD in her
face to face class.


It sounds like there are multiple case studies on the DVD (she thought
more that 10). She wants to show just one.


Is she free to stream as many of the case studies as she would like
because they are part of the textbook? Or is she limited to a
"reasonable" amount as if it were a separate item?


Seems to me that she would be fine to just show one case study, but I
was wondering how to answer the next person who wants to show them all.


thanks in advance for the insight.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. 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.
