Streaming Rights for DVDs

On occasion, streaming rights for a film on DVD may exist and the studio or artist will provide the digital file for the Lehigh Libraries. These digital files can be hosted on Lehigh's Coursesite platform for instructional use. The Lehigh Libraries can investigate whether such institutional digital rights are available and acquire the license for classroom purposes.

To initiate this process, please complete the Streaming Video Request Form.

The Lehigh Libraries are unable to assist with the digitization and hosting of media, whether physical or digital, without explicit institutional digital rights.

Additionally, many films are already accessible via our existing streaming services. Please click on the "Streaming Video" tab to learn more about the thousands of films that are available for streaming.
