Below is a guideline created by Duke University Libraries to help you determine if you can use a video for an online class.
If you are looking to host a public showing of video, please DO NOT use libary resources. Per copyright guidelines, library materials cannot be used for public performances.
According to the ALA FactSheet on Video & Copyright, "Most public performances of a video in a public room (including library meeting rooms), whether or not a fee is charged, are an infringement of copyright. Such performances require a public performance license from the rights holder. There are few exceptions to this rule unless the public performance is determined to be a fair use."
