Reserving Media Equipment

How to Reserve Media Equipment

  • Provide advanced notice (at least 24 hours in advance) by calling the library or coming into the library and speaking to the staff.  Let the staff know what type of equipment is needed, date and time needed, and the classroom number.  Library staff will reserve the equipment accordingly as it is available. 
  • Please come approximately 30 minutes (or half hour) before your class to pick up your equipment.  
  • Return equipment to the library the same day, after your class is over.  If your class ends at a time when the library is closed, please give the remote to a security officer and ask that they bring the remote to the library. 
  • Faculty ARE responsible for the safekeeping and security of media equipment when borrowed. Do not allow students to deliver equipment back and forth from the library. 
  • If assistance is needed with special equipment set-up, such as laptops/LCD units, please let the library tech on your campus or a Campus IT technician know several days in advance.  They will follow up with setting up the equipment for you. 
  • If you need to take the equipment off campus, you will have to seek permission from the Library Director
