Q. Does Moore Library purchase public performance rights?
Due to the extra cost and the fact that we are an academic institution, the Library usually does not purchase films with public performance rights (PPR). However, some documentary publishers and distributors (e.g., Films for the Humanities, Bullfrog) do include PPR in the purchase price so that these films may be screened to the public so long as the screening is free. These videos are the exception rather than the rule. If the library does have public performance rights, it will be denoted in the library's catalog.
