Filming in the library

Filming in the library

The guidelines below apply to students of Concordia University wishing to photograph or film in the Library for their course work. All other requests should be made according to the University Policy on Filming and Photography on University Premises which provides a framework for the rental and use of University premises for film productions and photo shoots.

The Request Form (Word Document) must be completed for each project and submitted by email to the Library Administration at lib-admin@concordia.ca . The approved request must be carried by the project team while filming. If any disturbance is caused, a library employee, or the security agent, may, at any time, ask project participants to cease filming/photography immediately. Any use of film or photography for commercial or non-commercial purposes beyond the immediate academic pursuits of the student requires separate written permission from the University Librarian.

Guidelines for Students

General criteria for filming in the library are outlined below but each request will be considered individually.

  • Each film crew member must obey the library's standard rules and abide by its code of conduct.
  • Patrons must not be disturbed or asked to move.
  • No close photography or filming of users is permitted without their signed consent.
  • Library services must not be interrupted (no filming will be authorized during peak times)
  • Only a hand-held camera can be authorized.
  • No elaborate set-ups are permitted.
  • Library collections, equipment, and furniture cannot be moved.
  • Faculty adviser's signature is required.
  • When presence of a Concordia security agent is required during shooting, the requester will be responsible for all necessary arrangements and charges.
  • If any disturbance is caused, a library employee, or a security agent, may ask project participants to cease filming/photography immediately.
  • Any use of film or photography for commercial or non-commercial purposes beyond the immediate academic pursuits of the student requires separate written permission from the University Librarian.
