Other available equipment
Audio-visual equipment is available for use by department
faculty, graduate student instructors and students in support of classes and
other department sanctioned activities. A slide and overhead projector are
provided in all department classrooms and are accessible via key. (Keys are
issued by Dan Plumlee). All items listed above are available on a checkout
Please note: media projectors and televisions are restricted to use in McCone Hall.
It is best to schedule equipment needs at the beginning of the semester, but 2 weeks advance notice is the rule. Please keep in mind that some resources are scarce and are reserved to the first person who provides the necessary information.
It is important to record and monitor long-term, blanket equipment reservations. Please update reservations as your needs change in order to avoid scheduling conflicts and to free reserved equipment for others when you no longer need it.
We will do our best to accommodate walk-in equipment requests, but cannot guarantee immediate access to the staff or equipment. It is the responsibility of the user to reserve such equipment beforehand.
Equipment reservations can be made by contacting Dan Plumlee via telephone (642-4368), e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by dropping by the office in room 519 McCone. If you leave your request as a message, consider the reservation made upon receipt of a confirming return message.
To reserve equipment, please supply the following information:
the equipment you wish to use
the class title
the classroom number
the time and duration of the class
This information will be entered into a scheduling program currently accessible to Dan Plumlee, Delores Dillard and Nat Vonnegut.
Pick-up and Return of Equipment
To gain access to projection equipment at time of need, contact Dan Plumlee, or Kristen Vogt if he is not available. In the event that neither Dan nor Kristen can be located, the other staff may be able to help.
When returning equipment, make sure that you leave it secure in its proper storage area or in the hands of department staff. If no-one can be located, secure the item in your office and message the staff person who issued you the equipment.
If you require equipment setup or retrieval you must schedule this specifically with Dan Plumlee at least 2 weeks in advance of the class period. A standard equipment reservation does not include this service.
All users of computer projected media are encouraged to schedule a debugging session with Dan Plumlee at least 30 minutes prior to show time. Keep in mind that the projector is only a monitor and problems with the interface generally lie with the computer and are the responsibility of the computer owner.
Audio-Visual Inventory is available from Dan Plumlee
