At this time, in accordance with current Copyright law as
interpreted by us, we would never put audio or video clips on
electronic reserve without written permission from the copyright
holder. Copyright laws that apply to print materials are not
the same for nonprint.

Electronic reserves & audio & video clips

Please forgive the cross posting but I am anxious to get as much feedback
as possible. Once again I am calling upon the rich cross section of
experience for some advice. As part of the library on our campus,
we are involved in a pilot project for implementing electronic
reserves. I would really appreciate hearing from any of you who have
already had experience in this arena. My questions are related to
what you are using as copyright guidelines for putting audio and
video clips on electronic reserve. Each course will have a password
access so there will be no question of these materials being
available to anyone not enrolled. If you have developed any
campus guidelines for the use of media in this manner, or know of any
guidelines that have been published in paper or on the WEB relating
to electronic reserves in general but better yet relating
specifically to media, I would love to hear from you.

If you could respond to me directly, I would be happy to summarize for any
of the lists who are interested. Thanks for you assistance. KD
