Equipment for Checkout

The Digital Scholarship Department has a wide range of equipment both for checkout and in-space use. The Digital Scholarship Commons in McHenry Library holds our audio, video, and design equipment along with a portion of our VR spaces and equipment. The soon-to-be-expanded Digital Innovation Studio in the Science and Engineering Library (scheduled for reopening in Spring 2022) will hold equipment for 3D printing, photogrammetry, laser cutting, virtuality reality, and augmented reality.

Checkout, Reservation, and Renewal

When available, equipment can be checked out without reservation, but you can reserve most equipment up to 2 weeks in advance. You can also request an extended checkout or item renewal.

Self-Service

The Digital Scholarship Commons provides access to software and equipment, but we cannot provide expert support for all functionality. The user is responsible for all work conducted on these workstations. 

Need Help?

We can provide limited help during our Student Support Hours. Our tutorials provide introductions to some of the software and equipment we use to support classes.
