Well you can always ask. If you are asking about a feature film I think you
can guarantee the answer will be no, with an educational film I suppose
someone might consider it.
I think the main thing would be to find the contact info, explain how you
acquired the title in the format you have and what format you want to
transfer it to.

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.
