Students are increasingly incorporating digital images, video, and audio into assignments and presentation material, but production equipment has not been widely available to them on campus. Beginning this Fall, students may borrow Canon video and still cameras, and Sony audio recorders from Library Multimedia Services (MMS) in RT 301.
Students can check out these items from the Library just as they would a book — there is a 1-day loan period on this equipment. Students supply their own DV tapes and flash media storage cards, but both tapes and flash media storage cards are available for purchase in the Library vending machine if students don't have their own.
After using the new cameras and recorders to capture the information they need, students can work on their digital files at home or use the professional video, audio and image editing equipment and software in Multimedia Services to create polished materials for presentations and other assignments. Help with equipment and software is available in Multimedia Services as well.
Students may contact MMS for more information at (216) 687-9337. Faculty wishing to borrow similar equipment should contact IMSS Equipment Circulation at (216) 687-3846.
