    Convert them to digital format and put them on YouTube.

    The military training manuals for shop machines are online for free. Maybe the videos are too. I know the Dewalt radial arm saws save the free world video was linked here about one year ago. Some of them are just a reprint of the civilian manual.
    If you list the titles we can search the web to see if they are already online.

    So cool! What about donating the reels to a museum or film archive?

    That's a long time to be a student at a city college.

    Thirty years ago the Berkeley film archives started to transfer film to video. I picked up a few film cans they threw out. Make great storage and step stools. Much better then a five gallon bucket.
