The ETV (Educational and Television Films Ltd) Collection, which includes 156 films from the political left from across the world, is to be withdrawn from MediaHub by Friday 31st July 2015.
MediaHub Site representatives should have already been informed that this would be the case via email late last year. The Jisc license for exclusive access to the ETV (Educational and Television Films Ltd) Collection expired in October 2014 but an extension had been agreed with the rights holders, BFI until the end of the 2014/15 academic year. In line with the terms of that extension of the license, the ETV Collection will be withdrawn from the MediaHub service, as part of our scheduled maintenance period during late afternoon (5pm onwards) on Thursday 30th July.
BFI will be continuing to make access to the ETV collections available but this will be through a separate offering, which we believe will be available for the 2016/17 academic year. We recommend that you contact BFI directly for more information on this.
Under the terms of the current licence, any authorised users at subscribing institutions who have downloaded films from the collection (before 31st July 2015) may continue to use them for teaching, learning and research as long as no further copies are created. In addition, if any teaching or learning materials have been created using parts of the collection, they can be deposited into Jorum in perpetuity or into your VLE.
