How could giving people a 2-day checkout for a video that at best
takes 2 hours to watch inconvenience them? Inconvenience is when the other 29
people in the class can't watch the video before the test which is
in 2 weeks.

I think there should be a reason for inconveniencing people with a shorter loan
period: the collection is very small, the collection is heavily used, or
whatever the specific problem is. The reason should not be: everybody else
does it or it's not a book. I still get the feeling that anything that isn't a
book is looked upon as an unloved stepchild in a lot of libraries and is
treated strangely.
