Audio-Visual (AV) Services

Book AV Equipment

It is vital that bookings be made at least two business days ahead. Last minute requests can only rarely be accommodated, as equipment may already be in use.

AV Usage

Instructors and staff interested in borrowing equipment must have a valid library services account. Check the Accounts section on the Library Services page for more information on how to obtain a library account.

Due to limited inventory and high demand, equipment cannot be loaned for more than one week, unless other arrangements have been made with AV technician.

Equipment must be picked up and returned by the borrower, unless other arrangements have been made with the AV technician. Borrower will be charged $1 per day per item for late equipment. Higher fees apply for lost or damaged equipment.

When using a piece of equipment for the first time, it is a good idea to make an appointment with the AV technician beforehand to get instructions in its use. This will save you time in the end!

Equipment is for use on campus only, with exceptions being made for use at community campuses. Please make arrangements with the AV technician.
