Subject: [Videolib] Buying at individual vs institutional price?

Would it be illegal and/or unethical for a library to try to buy a DVD at
a lower individual price rather than a higher institutional price, for
example
by claiming that the DVD will be for individual use only or by reimbursing
an individual staff member for a DVD purchased privately at an individual
price, especially if the library does not want PPR?

Thanks for any suggestions.

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.
