Order Requests for AudioVisual Equipment and Services
Please call our office at x3630 to place an order. We need two working days notice if you intend to use our equipment or services. Weekend requests require at least two weeks notice. Booking early will assure prompt delivery of your requested services. Last minute orders are difficult to accommodate and are not guaranteed.
When you make an equipment order for the entire semester, we will deliver your request to every class. However, this does NOT include finals week. If you need to use equipment for your final exam, or if your students plan final presentations, please make a separate reservation.
Depending on the location and circumstances, the following items may be delivered to your classroom: mobile computer cart with data projector, document camera, audience response system, various microphones or portable sound amplification, and more. Technical assistance, Mediasite recording, videoconferencing, and a variety of other services may be requested, as well.
If you cancel your class, call us to cancel your equipment reservation! Valuable equipment has been stolen out of unoccupied classrooms in the past.
We do not take reservations from students for classroom use of technology. Students who need to reserve equipment for class delivery will be instructed to ask their professor to order the equipment from IMS for the needed date, time, and location. This is for the benefit of faculty, who may not want to be surprised by a delivery of equipment for which they had not planned.
When classrooms do not contain installed technology, a mobile computer cart can be delivered to most rooms. These carts contain a computer with network connection, monitor, document camera, laptop connection and data/video projector. They are available in Humanities and CSB. IMS has a very limited supply of computer carts, so reserve one early.
