Copyright issue: short video excerpts

Wed, 13 Aug 97 11:52:29 EDT

A film instructor here would like to transfer short scenes from films onto
videotape and put it on reserve so students can do close analysis of those
particular scenes. She would like to have multiple copies of this scene-study
videotape on reserve. I know that the recent Multimedia Guidelines allows the
copying of limited footage for multimedia projects. Might the same guidelines
apply for reserve use in the library?

Thanks in advance for your opinions and advice,
