The Mauritius College of the Air has as its mission to produce educational audio-visual productions and run distance education courses. The resource center must deliver two distinct types of service as a result. On the one hand, it functions as a media library that lends, copies, and sells the educational media it produces to other organizations, while on the other hand it provides traditional academic library services to its lecturers, tutors and students. Distance education students are served through a separate Study Centre. Plans are in the works for a new building, which will receive more distance education-related staff and resources. S. Tschabrun.
