[Videolib] adding pornographic films to collection

Ok, I brought this topic up about a year ago, and got a lot of feedback, mostly philosophical . . . What I am hoping for this time is practical advice: Several faculty members have requested I purchase pornographic titles from the 60's and 70's for the collection. They will be used in classes on genre film, and, as part of our Media Services collection, can be viewed by students inhouse.
Do other academic libraries collect this sort of material? Is it handled any differently in terms of cataloging, storage, or access?
I'd appreciate hearing from others who have already dealt with these questions--thanks so much!
