Something like this might do (untested, though):

#! /bin/sh                                                                                                  

for FILE in /mount/disc_images/*; do
   mount -t cd9660 /dev/`mdconfig -f ${FILE}` /mount/office_files/images/${DEST}

Might need to add quotes if you have spaces or other unusual characters in your ISO filenames....
