Depending on your departmental or college affiliation, you may be able to check out other recording equipment from these labs:

  • Students, Faculty, and Staff in the School of Journalism & Mass Communication can check out equipment from the JMC Student Resource Lab in Franklin Hall.
  • Students, Faculty, and Staff in the College of Education can check out equipment from the Instructional Resource Center in White Hall.

Both of these labs have a wider selection of equipment for check-out, but can only be used by individuals within that department or college.
