At Guilford College, we have

1. a small video purchase fund in the library. Used to be $3k, but is less
than $1k now.

2. portions of the library book budget allocated to each academic
department. Video's can also be purchased from these funds.
If a given dept. doesn't spend its allocation by
January (I believe), the money is up for grabs by other depts.
Library staff can also make suggestions for purchases using these
funds.

3. If a department, or anybody has money from any source to spend on the
videos, we don't mind
accepting the materials. (No one here can afford to be frivolous,
however.)

4. There are odds and ends of small restricted funds (memorial to the
library)
that can sometimes be used for purchase of videos.
