Film Usage

Academic Film Collection (AFC) films are selected by faculty to be used in support of the AUP teaching program and their use is restricted to AUP Faculty, staff and students.

All films in the AFC and their sound tracks are protected by copyright: any broadcast, copying or editing is forbidden unless authorized by the producer or publisher. 

Due to copyright protection, the viewing and lending of the AFC films by and to AUP students, staff and faculty is subject to French and International Intellectual Property laws . Viewing the entire film on campus or borrowing for home use is only possible if the institutional rights are available and have been acquired by the University for a specific version of a film. 

The rights that AUP has obtained for each copy is indicated in the catalog and on each film by color coding: 

Green = Full institutional rights to view on campus and borrow for home use

Yellow = Partial rights : to view on campus only

Blue = Partial rights : to borrow for home use only 

Red = No institutional rights are available or none have been acquired.

 

Special policies and Viewing in the library

SPECIAL POLICIES

Many films can only be borrowed by a faculty member depending upon the number of copies owned and availability of institutional rights. A 'faculty copy' is identified by the 'F' above the call number or 'faculty copy' in the catalog. 

VIEWING FILMS IN THE LIBRARY

There is 1 video player and 1 DVD player in the library. Many of the DVDs can be viewed on the Library computers or your laptop. Given the large number of films which cannot be borrowed by AUP students and the limited number of monitors in the library, a viewing session can be scheduled in advance at the Service Desk or by an e-mail request to library@aup.fr. 

If requesting by e-mail, please indicate the title of the film and your library bar code number as well as the date and time you wish to view the film and wait for a written confirmation.

Check the film's color coding or the 'Note' field in the catalog to find a copy with rights for full viewing on-site (Green or Yellow tags). If not, only short excerpts can be viewed (Red and Blue tags).
