Lending Library

Media Services offers an equipment-lending inventory that may be utilized for academic and administrative (including short-term use for academic projects) purposes and/or for use while traveling on University business.

The lending items include:

  • Projectors
  • Recording and playback devices
  • Microphones
  • DVD players (including region free models)
  • And more….

See the pricing table  for a list of services and equipment available for reservation/delivery. If you are looking for something not on the list, please contact the Help Desk (, 1-508-793-7745). We often have it, but haven’t listed it, or can possibly source it for you.

To reserve and schedule media equipment, please contact the Help Desk (, 1-508-793-7745)

Media Services will confirm all reservations via email once we enter them into our reservation system. This generally happens within one-three business day of a request. If you do not receive a confirmation, please call to follow-up on your request.

All equipment is available on a first-come, first-served basis. For reservations of equipment or services that involve staffing/delivery/software installation, we request two weeks notice.

If you do not require delivery, feel free to contact us with as little as one business day’s notice. Assuming inventory availability we should be able to meet your needs.

In cases where a faculty member is requiring or suggesting students make use of Media Services equipment to complete projects, we request that the faculty member give us advance notice so that we can ensure we have adequate resources available to accommodate potential need.

In the case of recurring requests for projector carts, we will first look to meet requests in one of the university’s technology-equipped classrooms or teaching labs.

Weather and building conditions impact our ability to deliver equipment. If we are unable to meet your needs or accommodate your reservation, we will let you know as soon as possible and work with you as best we can to find an alternative solution.

Tier Explanations

Tier 1 pricing is generally applied to equipment reserved by departments or offices at the University for educational or administrative function.

The term “educational” is generally understood to include services required for courses, course delivery and/or directly related course activities. It may also include educational activities organized by Student Life, Human Resources, Career Services, etc.

It does not generally apply to events such as Commencement, Alumni Weekend, Orientation, etc.

Tier 2 pricing is generally applied to equipment or services reserved for University events that are open to the public and University-related use that is neither academic or administrative in nature.

These “fee for use” activities might include but are not limited to: Alumni events, public lectures or concerts, entertainment functions sponsored by student organizations, events funded or associated with grants, etc.

Tier 2 would also include use by non-profit groups hosting an event at Clark affiliated with a department or individual.
