    **The library's OPAC terminals can be used to locate materials anywhere within the DCCCD although all items are not owned by the library. Locations other than the library should be contacted directly. Access to most media is provided through the LRC - Media Distribution Service (B-220 x 6085) at Richland. In addition, the Telecourse Center (B-218 x 6094) provides equipment for viewing several formats (including video) and a service desk where non-book formats can be reserved for student or personal use. Some videos and a small selection of Books on Tape are also available for checkout from the Telecourse Center.
