Multimedia Support Center: Equipment Rental

Equipment Rental

The Multimedia Support Center offers some video and audio equipment for check out at the Circulation Desk. Patrons who wish to borrow equipment from the Library will need to be familiar with the technology. Because of this, some equipment is limited to patrons who have fulfilled the proper prerequisites. Others are available to all patrons. Prerequisites are noted in the descriptions below. 

If you require the use of headphones or a laptop while within the library or lab, these are also available at the circulation desk. In addition, Wacom drawing tablets can also be checked out for use within the library. These items are checked out by first come, first serve only. Visit the Circulation desk page for more information on headphones and laptops.

If you require in-class audio and visual equipment needs; such as a monitor, camera or projector; you'll need to contact the IT Support Center at helpdesk@cscc.edu or 614-287-5050

Patrons who borrow equipment from the Library must abide by the lending guidelines listed below.
