Digitization of audiovisual materials

The CGS is prepared to digitize audiovisual materials needed for language teaching in accordance with the principles of fair use.  The materials must be intended exclusively for instruction or research. Access is limited to students enrolled in the class. For more information on fair use, feel free to read the Wesleyan site about intellectual property and copyright laws.

Please note: an electronic ticket system will soon be implemented and will allow users to send requests using a form, in the meantime, please send your requests to Debbie Pozzetti (dpozzetti@wesleyan.edu) and include the following information:

  • Your name.
  • Your email address
  • Name of film
  • Subtitles? (if so, in which language)
  • If segments are requested, name and beginning and end time for each segment

Materials will be digitized in the order received.  We will honor all requests for materials submitted at least one week prior to the date needed and will try to honor others.

This studio includes a recording booth for audio and a green screen for video.  Project requests must be submitted by email to Emmanuel Paris-Bouvret (eparis@wesleyan.edu) at least one week in advance of the recording date. Please, include a brief description of your project so that we can work with you to develop it in greater detail.
