​Media Digitization Guidelines for Faculty

This is a guide to requesting digital copies of films, DVDs, and videotapes through the UO Libraries.

Is the original media an off-air recording, e.g., a TV broadcast?

The following questions will help determine what digitization and streaming options are available for an off-air recording, such as as a TV broadcast.

  • Is only 10% sufficient?
    • If yes...library staff can digitize and upload up to 10% of the total content (with a maximum of 500 MB) to a Canvas course site.

Currently, the UO Libraries cannot copy and upload the entire content of copyrighted videos to Canvas course sites without violating copyright law.

For more help, contact a subject specialist librarian or staff in the Center for Media and Educational Technology (CMET).
