The Library may in rare circumstances digitize video material for online courses when there is no alternative available and when a streaming version does not exist for purchase. Because this process includes rigorous copyright research, it often takes weeks or months to accomplish. Please contact Streaming Media if there is a video content you need for an online course. See a list of streaming media services below.
