We will be closing the labs for spring break on Friday March 11th at 4pm.
The labs will reopen on Sunday March 20th for our normal hours.
I would like to make equipment available to all of our students over the whole break but I know there my not be enough to go around for all those who may want it. We have a holiday schedule set up in Web Check Out which will allow equipment signed out on Thursday 3/10 to be due back on Monday 3/21. This allows a 12-day checkout to span the days we are closed for spring break. There will be a reserve limit of one camera, one extra lens, tripod and lighting kit per student through PIR (Patron Initiated Reserve). Students can begin to make reservations at 12pm on Monday March 7th for equipment to be picked up anytime after 12 noon Thursday March 10th.
Equipment can be reserved for the break on a first come first served basis through PIR. No phone-in reservations will be accepted and only the student borrowing the equipment may make a reservation. All late fines or invoices must be paid before making reservations. Equipment can’t be checked out any earlier than noon on Thursday March 10th. There will be no renewals granted on items check out over spring break. Nor will we allow items checked out before spring break to be renewed as a spring break checkout. All spring break checkouts will be handled as a new checkout at the photo cage after 12 noon on Thursday March 10th.
To accommodate these loans, all previously checked out equipment must be returned by 10 am Thursday March 10th so it can be ready for the reserved checkouts.
Let me know if you have any questions.
