The Service Center lends multimedia equipment that may be used to create or enhance a class project or your own personal project. Equipment offered includes still and video digital cameras, audio recorders, iPads, headphones, and more. Case students, faculty, and staff and CIA/CIM students and staff are welcome to borrow equipment with current school ID card and library account with $15 or less in fines.
Most equipment can be borrowed for 2 nights, while some items are short term, library use only loans. The equipment is not renewable and cannot be re-checked out on the same day due to the limited supply. Equipment must be returned to Service Center staff before the Service Center closes. Returns made on the due date after Service Center closing will be considered late. When returning, please wait for staff to confirm that all equipment has cleared from your account.
If you are unsure of an item’s loan duration, ask at the Service Center upon checkout or check your library account to avoid fines.
Borrowers assume the responsibility of keeping items secure and in proper working condition throughout the loan. Each piece of equipment is inspected by staff upon return. If damage is suspected, the borrower will be notified if any further action is required.
For equipment that is damaged, lost, or stolen, fees will be assessed. As the cost of each device varies, so does the replacement fee. We will not accept equipment purchased by the borrower as a substitute.
