Media Services

Library media materials are cataloged in the Library's online catalog. Display boxes for videos are shelved on the second floor in the Media Software Collection near the student computers. Inquire at the Circulation Desk for the actual video you need or any other media material which you may find in the catalog.

All media materials and equipment, for use inside or outside the Library, need to be checked out at the Circulation Desk using your valid barcoded RCC ID card.

Faculty and Staff Policies 

Faculty and staff may borrow media materials and equipment for classroom instruction. To avoid disappointment, media materials should be previewed prior to use. 
To increase the likelihood of equipment availability, make requests three days in advance. Requests are honored on a "first come first served" basis. We encourage you to plan ahead. Same day walk-in requests are allowed but discouraged.

To reserve media materials and equipment:
Fill out a media request form at the Help Desk and leave it at the Circulation Desk or 
fill out the online form by selecting Media Materials & Equipment Request.

Semester Equipment Loans are available for frequent users of the same equipment. Borrowers are always responsible for equipment security. Equipment must be returned to the Library for maintenance at the end of the semester. The Library may recall semester loan equipment for emergency use.

The Library accepts responsibility for maintenance and repair of all Library equipment. Please report broken equipment and all equipment dropped in transport.

Please note: Use of Library media equipment and materials, that is not in support of teaching, learning or authorized college activities or which does not comply with Library policies or U.S. copyright law, is not authorized by the College.

Student Policies

Normally, students can only use media equipment and materials in the Library. Once you have located the media material you want, bring it to the Circulation Desk. Library staff will assist you in setting up equipment and instruct you in its operation. The library has a Group Media Viewing Room equipped with a DVD/VHS player and an Internet TV. This TV allows for viewing streaming video online from Films on Demand or Youtube. A student ID is required to use this room. When you are finished, place the program back in its container, turn off all equipment and return the program to the Circulation Desk.

Students may also borrow media materials and equipment outside of the Library if it is to be used for a verified RCC club activity on campus. Fill out an AV Materials and Equipment Request Form three days in advance accompanied by a signed endorsement of a Club Advisor, Student Activities Director, or Dean of Students. Leave these at the Circulation Desk. Loan of materials and equipment is subject to availability.
