It would make seem to make sense (and seem to be allowable to me, at
least) to put a VHS copy of a laserdisc on reserve IF the original
laserdisc was not circulated or viewed at the same time.
The professor could put the original laserdisc on reserve for
students to view on university equipment or check out to view on
their own.  Right?
However, since laserdiscs are not very common, it would seem that the
law would allow for access to the material through a different medium
in this educational situation.
It would be similar to an archives transferring 78's to tape for
listening purposes by visitors to the archives since turntables
capable of playing the format are uncommon and the checkout
procedure would endanger the original material.  The original 78
source material is still held by the archives, of course.
