In addition to the standard MS Office, the Adobe Production Suite, including digital imaging, audio, video production and Acrobat Pro, are installed on the computers. R-MC members are welcome to use the video transfer equipment to transfer VHS to digital format. The Production Room provides group work and demonstration space for faculty and students. Instructional Design & Technology office provides training and support on using media production software and equipment.

Equipment Loan

Faculty, staff and students can check out media and projection equipment at the Library Information Desk. The loan items are for college functions, with priority given to class and other academic presentations. Training on using the equipment will be provided at the check-out. The Library Information Desk and Instructional Design & Technology office do not deliver or set up media equipment. Patrons may consult with ITS (, or 752-8500) for trouble-shooting or tech support.

Borrowing the laptop and projector requires advance notice due to limited quantity of the equipment. Borrowing the Canon EOS Digital SLR image camera also requires advance reservation and an appointment for 30-minute training. Contact Lily Zhang ( or 752-3216) for reservations and training.

Overdue Fines & Damaged or Lost Equipment
Patrons are subject to fines for overdue equipment, at the rate of $3.00 per day per item. A replacement charge is automatically assessed for any item that is damaged or not returned by the end of the semester. The replacement charge ranges from $75.00 to $3000.00, depending on the equipment. Overdue fines are not added to this replacement cost. Donated items will not be accepted in lieu of the replacement charge, which covers processing as well as item costs.
