Michigan State University is celebrating a major donation to its campus library.

A California media company is donating nearly one million CDs, DVDs, Blu-Rays and video games to MSU.

“I know it’s corny but it’s priceless,” says Clifford Haka, who directs the MSU libraries. “Even if we had $100 million, we couldn’t go out and replicate this because most of this stuff is no longer available anywhere.”

The collection spans children’s video to more adult-oriented fare.

The collection will be available for casual library-goers and scholarly research. 

“It is extremely gratifying to establish the largest collection of entertainment content in a U.S. library and allow future generations to access and enjoy these wonderful media artifacts from the past two decades,” says Kathy Weidman, senior vice president and general manager.
