Films can be used through Virtual Cinema according to strict guidelines devised by Vanderbilt University's Office of the General Counsel. These guidelines allow us to provide a service that operates within the confines of U.S. copyright laws:
1) CSLS must own a physical copy of the film. We cannot place films in Virtual Cinema that are personal possessions or library property.
2) CSLS must ask for permission from the distributors and, if necessary, pay the required fees.
3) Each instructor may request purchase of a maximum of seven films per semester.
4) The staff must have at least 5 business days lead time to place films in Virtual Cinema.
