Instructional Resources - Audio-Visual Equipment

Audio-visual equipment is available to the college community, however, classroom use is top priority. Requests should be made at least 48 hours before the equipment is needed. Faculty and staff should make any requests for student audio-visual needs. Equipment is delivered to the classroom and set up for use; an operator is not provided to operate the equipment. When equipment is being used off campus, it must be picked up at the Instructional Resources Center and signed out by the user. Below is a listing of equipment:
