More than likely they are being blocked by a firewall not the dns... Sorry Mate.

There must be a reason why they have it blocked.... Maybe if you ask the Library director they can tell you why it is blocked

Maybe if you Google the site and open dns it may tell you why it was blocked.

if you want to change,you'll have the admin rights. you should contact your admin to do the changes,because you don't have the permissions.
and about the web,,what web do you mean?? admin can block the web address..so have the web address can access and can't, depend on the set of admin.

Regardless of if the site really is clean or not. You would most likely be violating any usage policy your school has in place by trying to bypass / alter their systems. That could get you into trouble.
