Why? If it is a legally acqiured copy I can't imagine why you shouldn't
circulate it. Many books go out of print while libraries still own and
circulate their copies. That's sort of the point.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
