Others on the list will probably answer this first, but your instincts
are correct, you should not catalog it, as it was not the property of
the giver to give so the rights of first sale do not apply.

I have just come to catlog a VHS video of In the Bedroom from our
satellite campus for their library. It is a gift from faculty, but the
box is clearly marked DEMO TAPE and Full length screener for video
retailers only. The cassette itself is marked Demo VHS not for sale or
rental and This product is the property of Buena Vista Pictures
Distribution and must be returned upon request.

This is the first time I have come across anything like this. I don't
think that we can add the video to our library's collection. What is
the wisdom of the group? Any help would be appreciated!
