Media Equipment

Faculty and Staff may borrow projection screens, and overhead projectors.  Faculty and Staff will need to let the Media & Digital Resource Librarian know if they plan to use the materials longer than the standard check out time.

Graduate students may borrow equipment longer than the standard check out time, as long as they communicate with Media & Digital Services  ( through email, phone, or in person.  

Students may borrow only certain items of equipment. These include digital cameras, digital camcorders, tripods, voice recorders, tape recorders, Mac VGA connector cables, headphone splitters, SD card readers, and portable DVD/Tape players. Students may also use most of the remaining equipment in-house with permission from the Media Librarian. For a list of tutorials about various equipment please see the Media Tutorials Guide.

Faculty, staff, and students are responsible for damage or loss of equipment that they checkout. If library material is damaged or is lost, the patron is billed for the replacement cost of the material plus any fines and fees.

Equipment can only be checked out of the Media Services Lab from the hours of 8:30 am-5:00 pm Monday through Friday.
