The Libraries own VHS tapes, DVDs and laserdiscs, some of which may include public performance rights. Please contact Karen Clift to determine if the library purchased public performance rights for an individual title.

  • Library-owned films on DVD, laserdisc, and VHS DO NOT include public performance rights UNLESS you see a note in the catalog record that states otherwise.
  • Showing library-owned films outside of the classroom without public performance rights may be illegal.
  • If the library did not purchase public performance rights, it is the responsibility of the individual or organization intending to publicly screen the film to secure public performance rights.

Streaming videos available to faculty, staff, and students may also be found by searching the title of the video in the Books & More tab on the Libraries' website. 

You may also browse streaming videos in the following databases:

Alexander Street Press

Kanopy Streaming Video

OhioLINK Educational and Instructional Videos

All films in the streaming databases above include public performance rights as long as no admission fee is charged.
