Films for entertainment purposes are not covered under Fair Dealing.
The Library has subscribed to “Entertainment Use Rights” licenses with Audio Cine and Criterion, allowing broader viewing than just classroom use.
You may watch videos for non-educational purposes if:
The Criterion license covers indoor and outdoor campus screenings. For the Audio Cine collection, if you wish to show an outdoor screening, please contact the Library Copyright office. Not all film studios in that collection allow for outdoor screenings.
Anything else is not covered and separate entertainment rights will need to be purchased or acquired. Please contact Library Copyright to arrange this.
The office of Graduate Studies oversees Theses, Dissertations and Defendable Projects. Information is available on their website.
Some tools to help you write your thesis are available through the Academic Success Centre.
