Equipment Request and Use:

The scheduling of Computer Labs equipment (i.e. Overhead Projector, LCD Projector, VCR & Monitor, Gateway Destination, etc) is created according to the needs of a particular course. Your program dean coordinates scheduling with other deans and lab administrators and staff.

Individual faculty requests for equipment are subject to equipment availability and are issued on a "first come, first served" basis. In the event that the equipment requested is not available due to semester bound commitment(s), please meet with your dean.

Please note, A/V equipment cannot be left unsupervised by the requesting instructor. The Computer Labs staff must be alerted when you are finished using the equipment. In the event that a staff member is not available for pickup, please notify security to ensure that the equipment is returned to the Computer Labs.

In the event of an equipment problem, a Computer Labs staff member should be notified immediately. Instructors are not permitted to fix any piece of equipment. If an instructor needs technical assistance, please contact a Computer Labs staff member and he/she will request a technician.
