Burling Media Room Recording Policy
The Burling Media Room has recording capability primarily from analog formats (LP, audio cassette, reel-to-reel audio tape) to digital (CD), with limited facility to record from VHS to DVD. However, most recording is done only for class-related use and in strict adherence to copyright and fair use guidelines.
The recording of an entire work from a commercially produced recording is not usually permitted. If you need a tape or CD made for a class presentation, please speak to the Burling Media Room supervisor to get a copy of the Recording Request Form. Any questions concerning this policy should be directed to the Burling Media Room Supervisor or the Collection Development Librarian.
On-Campus Concert Recordings and Taping
Recitals and concerts given by Grinnell College faculty, staff and students are recorded by the Music Department and the archival copy is housed in the Burling Media Room. Some of these recordings are included in our online catalog; please ask if you do not find the recording you are looking for. Generally, these recordings may be copied for the cost of the CD, DVD or tape, currently $1.00 - $2.00, depending on the length of the recording. Please speak to a Burling Media Room staff member if you are interested.
AV Center Recordings
Additional on-campus recordings may be available at the AV Center. Please contact the AV Center staff for more information.
