The duplication of copyrighted material (videos, audiocassettes, DVDs or CDs) is a violation of federal law. Faculty wishing videotapes, audiotapes, DVDs and/or CDs to be copied must complete a duplication request form and a duplication certification form, releasing the college from any liability stemming from the duplication of copyrighted material. The personal and professional protection is to seek prior written permission from the parties owning the rights to the materials for personal use at any time. The Director of the Center reserves the rights to reject any duplication request that is not for instructional purposes.
Submitting a Request
When submitting media to the center to be duplicated, it is important that the original is of the highest possible quality. Therefore, when recording a video of a program, make sure the standard speed (SP) is used for the original recording. While slower speed recording offers more recording time, it reduces the total picture quality that will only worsen with your copies. All video camcorders in the center record at SP speed. If you should provide us with EP or SLP originals, we may have to delay the delivery of your copies as much as 5 to 7 working days.
Please allow at least THREE WORKING DAYS to complete your duplication requests. Because of our workload, “rush orders” are extremely difficult to accommodate.
