The library's collection of AV equipment is for classroom instruction. The following equipment is available for this purpose:
Borrowers must provide their own blank VHS tapes, DVD's, and cassette tapes.
NOTE: Projection equipment (both computer and overheads) is reserved through the Information Resources office.
Due to the limited number available, reserving equipment ahead of time is essential to ensure that all users are efficiently served. There are three ways to reserve equipment:
When reserving a piece of equipment, it is important to provide the following information:
Students who wish to use equipment for class presentations, may reserve it under their professor's name. The faculty member assumes responsibility for equipment used under their authorization.
If reserved equipment is no longer needed, please cancel the reservation promptly.
The library does not pick up or deliver AV equipment. Faculty, staff or their designated students are responsible for picking up and returning equipment to the Library Circulation Desk.
If the equipment cannot be returned to the library before the library closes, arrangements must be made to safeguard the equipment overnight, or ask Security to return the equipment to the library for you.
All equipment is checked and cleaned annually. However any problems, damage or malfunctions encountered should be reported to the library staff as soon as possible so the equipment can be taken out of service and repaired. Please be specific when describing the problem to aid the repair process. Broken bulbs and dead batteries can be replaced immediately.
You may test the equipment in the library when picking it up to make sure you know how to operate it and that it is functioning properly.
*The Library is not involved with AV production, duplication or repair.
