Good Morning, Our collection development department is now ordering media since the merger of the Media Library. A faculty member wants the library to purchase The Animator's Survival Kit on dvd.
Here is the response received from the vendor about purchasing the set. "I notice that you are ordering on behalf of a university, and therefore I am obliged to advise you of the terms and conditions around screening rights. If you plan to use these for screening to students or colleagues or keep in a library, copyright permission needs to be purchased. The cost of this is £1268.08, plus courier costs £37.00. You will then receive 2 copies of the DVDs, and the copyright permission to place them in a lending library, or screen them for students. Please note that all of our charges and quotes are in Sterling. If this is for private use only, please let us know and we will supply the one copy you have ordered, but you should be aware that any screening use would be illegal." Has anyone purchased this before? Wouldn't educational use still apply since it's for classroom use? Or is the something related to the UK? We don't need two dvd sets. From my calculations it would be over $2,000. Any thoughts or suggestions are very welcome. Thanks.

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.
