LIS offers a number of audio-video copying and conversion services. It is extremely important to remember that copyright issues with copying and conversion are very complex.

Copying, displaying and distributing copyrighted works may infringe the owner's copyright. Middlebury College’s Copyright Guidelines can help you determine whether your use of a copyrighted work is a fair use or requires permission. Any use of computer or duplicating facilities by students, faculty or staff for infringing use of copyrighted works is subject to appropriate disciplinary action as well as those civil remedies and criminal penalties provided by federal law.

Important Notes

  • No duplication will be done without written copyright permission or a determination by LIS that the requested copying should be considered fair use of the materials.
  • To get the best results (quality, longevity, etc.), look for a commercial copy in digital format (DVD, Blu-ray or web video.) You can request a commercial title to be purchased through LIS by using this form: go/request.
  • Converting from one format to another may result in some loss of quality.
  • Converting to a digital format will not result in a higher quality copy. However, converting to a digital format will allow you to keep using the material despite changes in the industry (see the The Analog Sunset page for more details about industry changes.)

Copies or excerpts for classroom use

Please follow the steps below to request digital titles for classroom use. Please note that no duplication will be done without written copyright permission or a determination by LIS that the requested copying should be considered fair use of the materials.

  • Submit your request via the LIS Request form. If there are specific questions or special needs, it may be appropriate to contact your LIS liaison.
  • The request will be reviewed by qualified LIS staff. We will try to find and obtain a commercial copy in the best format available.
  • Requests are usually filled within five business days of receipt of request.
  • If you need help in creating digital excerpts or clips, the Wilson Media Lab may be able to assist. Visit their home page for more information: go/dmt.

Personal copies

  • No duplication will be done without written copyright permission or a determination by LIS that the requested copying should be considered fair use of the materials.
  • This service is restricted to copies of lectures, classroom events, plays and talent shows, any events shot on campus with appropriate permissions.
  • The requester must supply the video or audio master and good quality blank tape.
  • The requester must supply the same number of blank tapes as there are masters.
  • Copies will not be edited in any way (e.g. if two or more tapes of an event are recorded, there will be no editing of the tapes onto a single tape).
  • Language Schools must coordinate requests with their School’s bilingual assistant.
  • Requests are usually filled within five business days of receipt of request.
  • Requests are limited to 3 copies MAX. We can recommend a 3rd party service if needed: http://www.vidsync.com/.
