Media Loan Scheduling Policy
Media Service facilities and equipment are available to currently enrolled students and faculty to support academic work. There is no recreational or unauthorized commercial use permitted. Some facilities require proficiency certification from Media Services staff and may require prior production experience for advanced facilities. Most facilities require users to check out keys from Media Loan to gain access while others are supervised by lab aides and have posted open hours.
Media Loan & Key Checkout
Once you have time scheduled in a facility you must check out a key from Media Loan to gain access. Keys can only be checked out close to your scheduled time and must be returned promptly afterwards. Keeping keys overdue will result in overdue fees and may cause loss of access. You need to present a Evergreen ID card (current quarter validation required for students) to check out keys.
Library, Lecture Hall & Seminar II A/V Classrooms
Only faculty and staff may reserve Library, Lecture Hall and Seminar II rooms by sending an email request to Space Scheduling. Keys that open the A/V cabinets and podiums are checked out to faculty and staff from Media Loan. Student groups requiring access must have a Campus Production Clearance form signed by an Electronic Media Producer in order to check out keys. To schedule an orientation to these classrooms call Electronic Media at ext. 6270.
