Equipment Loan Office in Bulger Renamed, Some Items Moved to Butler

Audiovisual equipment loans to faculty, staff, and students for enhanced learning and instruction are now processed from two offices. The office in Bulger Communication Center 204, formerly known as Equipment Loan, is now called Classroom Technology Support; it retains the bulk of its equipment, but many of the smaller, more portable devices have moved to Media Services, E. H. Butler Library 214, to allow greater for access.

Classroom Technology Support (in Bulger) provides equipment for classroom instruction and special events on campus. Most of the equipment is on mobile carts and is available in satellite equipment rooms in many academic buildings. Equipment includes smart carts, teleconference telephones, VHS camcorders, TVs with DVD/VHS combos, 13- to 25-inch TV monitors, DVD players, VCR/DVD combos, wireless microphones, PA systems, amplified speakers, portable screens (60- and 72-inch), slide and video projectors, tabletop and portable amplified lecterns, CD/cassette and cassette-only recorders, overhead projectors, visual presenters (document cameras), and record players. Advance requests are required to ensure equipment availability. Equipment must stay on campus.

Most smaller devices are now available from the Equipment Loan center in Media Services (in Butler). These include laptop computers (Mac and PC), digital camcorders, digital still cameras, digital video cameras and projectors, camera tripods, digital voice recorders, and external hard drives. Equipment is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The offices are separate and each has different hours, contact information, and loan policies. Please contact Classroom Technology Support, (716) 878-4535, or Equipment Loan, (716) 878-6237, with questions.
