I believe VHS has been declare obsolete and are allowed to convert to other
format unless you could purchase the content in new format?
I can't find exact source for it. I do know there are libraries converting
the VHS holdings to DVD>

Thanks for the response. The only information I've been given so far is that
the library only has it on VHS and the faculty member "needs it on DVD" (so
presumably they won't have access to a VCR wherever they're showing it). Our
librarians buy videos from Kanopy, Swank, etc. on the regular, so I'm
guessing the title is so obscure the vendors don't have it - but I'll double
check when I get back to them with recommendations.
