Reserving Laptops for Faculty/Staff
Reserving Media Equipment and Laptops
Equipment from the loan pool must be reserved 2-3 business in advance by visiting the IT website and filling out the equipment loan form. The equipment can be picked up during normal business hours in University Hall, 5th floor.
Only a faculty, staff, or an on-campus GA is allowed to reserve a Data Projector, Camcorder, Video Projector, PA System, Karaoke unit, and Mobile Presentation System.
Students who would like to request AV Equipment and Laptops must have a Faculty/Staff member request the equipment on their behalf. Faculty/Staff may then visit online (http://www.montclair.edu/oit/forms) and fill out the Equipment Loan Request form (2-3 business days in advance).
Faculty and Graduate Assistants may borrow digital camcorders (mini DV tapes) to videotape their classes. The camcorders are simple to operate and the TSS/AV Services will provide training by appointment. Faculty may also arrange for students to reserve and borrow camcorders under their name by filling out the online Equipment Loan Request form. TSS can also recommend the purchase of a digital camcorder.
The University Help Desk (x7971, option 1) will make arrangements or confirmation for network connections. They will forward these requests to the appropriate Information Technology group. Computers may need to be configured for a particular room or building. Please plan for rehearsal time at least a day before your event for special presentations with computers, data projections, network connections, and telephone lines. Please have a contingency plan.
Even with a rehearsal, hardware, software and network connections can fail. If you are using the internet, have a simulation on your laptop or DVD in case the network fails. If possible, have a video or a related topic.
Laptops & Data Projectors
Data projectors are available for presentations. All requests should be made 2-3 days in advance. Same day requests may not guarantee equipment availability. Equipment may be borrowed over night and returned the next day. If reserving on a Friday, equipment can be returned on Monday.
This equipment can be picked up during normal business hours.
