Reserve Media Lab & Equipment: Policy

Media Equipment Checkouts

Media Equipment Checkouts

Media Equipment (cameras, video cameras, tripods, lighting, microphones, storage media, and other audio or video equipment) can be borrowed for a 24-hour loan period.

Please Reserve Media Equipment prior to check out by using the reservation system on this webpage. 

Borrowers will be charged a fine of $1.00 per day, or any portion of a day, for each item (i.e. camera, SD card, microphone, lighting, or other device or equipment) returned after the specified deadline. There is no maximum fine for overdue devices and accessories.

All files and work created on the camera/device/SD card, or other storage will be deleted at the end of the loan period. Please save your work in the cloud, on a personal flash drive or external drive, or by emailing it to yourself. The library staff are not responsible for work lost while using a library device.

While using media equipment and the media lab, I agree to adhere to the policies and procedures of the library, the media lab, and NC Wesleyan University. Failure to follow these policies and procedures can result in users losing their Media Lab and/or borrowing privileges.

Report any problems to staff at the Circulation Desk as soon as possible.
