It's a sign we're clearly out of the age of the video tape.

This week the University of Minnesota Duluth is giving away more than 4,000 videotapes for free.

The tapes include everything from movies to pieces about Shakespeare.

UMD decided to giveaway the tapes instead of recycling them.

The giveaway goes until Friday.
