Other than keeping them in a cool dry place I can't think of any storage
advice. You would need to be VERY careful about either making them available
to the general public, including the University Public unless they are for
some reason all Public Domain films. If you just use them for classes you
should not to worry about rights but if you want to screen em to an audience
you will have to figure out who if anyone owns them.
