Media Vendors 

In order to build a useful library media collection, I need your input. The websites listed below will help you locate media titles in your discipline. Please send me the title and vendor, as well as your name, department and telephone number (woollen@scc.losrios.edu or through campus mail). I'll notify you when the item arrives. As you view our current titles, if you find one that is out-dated, inaccurate, or might have a better home elsewhere, let me know. 

Please note we are required to purchase closed-captioned media only. If, when ordering, I find that one of your requests is not closed captioned, I'll work with you to locate a replacement that is.

Thanks,
Nicole Woolley
