Charles B. Sears Law Library University at Buffalo School of Law

Performance Rights


The majority of AV materials held by the Law Library are purchased with limited classroom rights and do not allow public performance. For materials which are purchased with public performance rights, a public note is added to the Holdings record. If multiple copies with different rights are held, then a non-public note should also be added to the Holdings record for the copy with classroom-only rights.

MATERIALS WITH CLASSROOM-ONLY RIGHTS:
  • the standard; no notes needed. If there are no notes regarding performance rights, assume Classroom Use only.
MATERIALS WITH PUBLIC PERFORMANCE RIGHTS:
  • in Holdings, add:
    $z Limited public performance rights copy
MATERIALS WITH BOTH PUBLIC PERFORMANCE AND CLASSROOM USE COPIES:
  • in Holdings for Public Performance copy, add:
    $z Limited public performance rights copy
  • in Holdings for Classroom Use copy, add:
    $x Classroom use copy

Note:
Law's treatment of performance rights notes differs from that of other units. For other University Libraries units, CTS adds a note within the bibliographic record (540 Public performance rights included.) but does not add notes to the Holdings record. Law does not add these notes to the bibliographic record since different copies can have different rights statuses, as in the example above.
