If there is more than one student who wishes to view a video or DVD, a Library study room with a VCR or DVD player and TV must first be checked out from the Library Check-out Desk. A current Mt. SAC student ID must be left at the Media Services front desk and will be returned when the video is returned. The only form of identification that will be accepted is a Mt. SAC student ID.
