Should Academic Libraries Be Able to Subscribe to Netflix?
Many college libraries are turning to Netflix to flesh-out small film collections when faced with limited budgets. The University of Washington, Pacific Lutheran University and Williamette University are among the colleges that have Netflix subscriptions for their libraries. Rebecca Fitzgerald, a librarian at Concordia College, says she saved her library $3,000 in film purchases.
Netflix does not offer any kind of educational, or even institutional subscriptions. They state that their service is only intended for personal use.
