Streaming Videos - Search the Library Catalog or the Sites Below for Additional Selections

Videos to which the Library has already arranged access are included in the Library's Catalog at https://elibrary.wayne.edu/search/  The websites below can also be used to search for additional films you might wish to use in courses.  Videos can be requested through the library's Streaming Media (Video and Audio) Request Form.  If possible, include the URL for the film you'd like in the Call Number field. When Wayne State University Libraries has acquired licensed access, the video will be accessible through the library's catalog.  The Permalink at the bottom of the cataloging record can be given directly to students, and/or embedded in Canvas or other course sites.

Can't the Library Convert DVD/VHS to digital streaming?

Unfortunately, there is no fair use argument for converting a fixed medium (like a DVD) to digital for streaming. This type of activity is covered under the Digital Copyright Millenium Act (DCMA) which only provides for screen capture of reasonable portions of a film to be used for critique or analysis in a class

In accordance with the Exemption to Prohibition on Circumvention of Copyright Protection Systems for Access Control Technologies, A Rule by the Copyright Office, Library of Congress on 10/26/2018 (Final Rule) and in alignment with the provisions of the TEACH Act, instructors may:

  • Use screen capture software to capture clips (short portions) into new works for criticism or comment. (best practice suggests 20% or less of total film running time)
  • Post this screen capture using a streaming system that would prevent downloading and distribution of the file. 

Please consult our instructions for capture and streaming using ECHO 360 to make these resources available in your Canvas course site.
