Overview

As stated in the article Requesting content from eStream, supplying content to people often comes with a number of challenges when it comes to interpretation of Intellectual Property (IP) legislation, and therefore the following should be taken as a broad overview, as individual recordings are governed by individual permissions on a case by case basis.

Onsite vs offsite requests

Because students and alumni are able to access previous years’ performances through the computers at Laban Library, we would encourage any requests for footage to be done onsite and in person, however, we know that this won’t always be a possibility for everyone.

Recordings from the current academic year (Faculty of Dance)

Class recordings, assessments, and student performances (Faculty of Dance)

We offer a limited licence for students and teaching staff to download the majority of these recordings for their own personal and private research purposes ONLY during the academic year in which the recording took place (for this purpose, we count an academic year as running between September and August, although it is slightly extended for Post Graduates).

This licence ONLY applies to recordings that the student or staff member had a role in, and is offered only as a self service model where available recordings are available for download from eStream. For help downloading any such content, please see the support section entitled “Downloading Content from eStream”.

Please be aware, that IF the download option is NOT available for a recording, we are unable to supply it.

Recordings from previous academic years (Faculty of Dance)

Class recordings, assessments, and student performances (Faculty of Dance)

As stated in the section “How long does content remain on eStream“, not all content is available indefinitely, so where possible, any required content should be downloaded before the current academic year is finished. For help storing content on your own computer, please see the support article entitled “Safely backing up digital files”.

Dealing with request for content from previous academic years is a time consuming task for support staff, so any requests from students, staff or alums should abide by the following system to request content.

Onsite enquiries for recordings in person at Laban Library.

Please note that it is easier and cheaper to request content if you are able to get to the Faculty of Dance library in person. For more information, see the section about “Onsite enquiries for recordings in person at Laban Library“.

If you are unable to attend in person, please complete the form below.

Costs

There will be a service charge of £1 for sending the files to you via the cloud which will be added on top of any additional charges listed below:

  • +£1 for each file requested where you know the eStream reference number or URL.
  • +£2 for each file requested where you don’t know the eStream reference number or URL.

Charges will only apply if we are able to locate the files.
