No. Just because the library owns the physical copy of the title on DVD or VHS, that does not mean it has the rights to stream the video. However, the library may be able to license a legal streaming version of the film; the library's ability to do so depends on a number of factors, including but not limited to the availability and cost of a streaming license, ability to contact the publisher, availability of funds, the number of students enrolled in the class, and if the course is online or face-to-face. To see if the library can provide a streaming video for your course, contact the multimedia services librarian.
