Media Collection Policy


DVD NTSC, Region 1 is given preference. However, multi-region DVDs are considered on a title by title basis in conjunction with instructional and research needs. VHS cassette tapes are purchased on a title by title basis when a faculty-requested item is available in no other format.


Motion pictures and television series are largely acquired with home use licensing. Home use DVDs may be used for classroom instruction in accordance with the exemption rule to home use videos. All other film types are typically, but not always, purchased with a public performance license.
