That’s a frustrating situation. First of all, please know that it frustrates your librarians when we cannot obtain a license for you, too.
Then consider the following, admittedly less than ideal, options:
- If the film is available through a service that offers individual subscriptions or purchases, consider asking students to subscribe or purchase.
- Ask the library to purchase the DVD, and then ask students to visit the library to view it.
- Public libraries may also have copies of the DVD and be an option for students.
- Substitute another film that is available through our subscription services.
