i was hoping to find a movie called drop dead fred
Thanks for asking! There's a title that brings back memories - unfortunately, we don't happen to have Drop Dead Fred in our DVD collection. It's old enough that our vendors aren't likely to have it available (and bizarrely expensive on Amazon) so the best way to find it through us will be inter-library loan. With ILL, we can call out to library systems around the country to see if anyone will lend a copy to you through us. The service comes with a charge for postage, but it's a good and relatively inexpensive way to find older or rare material. (Not to steer traffic to the 'competition', but it also appears to be available on Hulu Plus, in case you already subscribe.)
If you're interested in requesting the movie through ILL, you have a couple of options - if you're familiar with the WorldCAT database, you can place the request through the link above, or you can pick up a paper ILL request form from your neighborhood library. Our staff will be happy to assist you in finding the information needed for the request paperwork.
Thanks for using AskOPL! If you have questions about this process, feel free to call our inter-library loan department at 402-444-4857.
