If there is a book or movie that the TMCC library does not own, consider looking for it at UNR and Washoe County. There is no cost to borrow materials from either of these places unless you do not return materials on time. Make sure to check what times and days these libraries are open and for UNR be sure to have your TMCC student ID.
Aside from TMCC's physical holdings of DVD's take a look at Kanopy Films to see if a movie you need is available. To access Kanopy you will need to log in with your TMCC user name and password.
