Lending Policies

Student Lending Policies

Students are not permitted to check out media such as videotapes, DVDs, or original CDs. They may, however, use them in the lab. To do so, students must leave their Student ID (GO Card) at the counter. The Student ID will be returned once the student returns the media.

Faculty Lending Policies

Both faculty and graduate students who are currently teaching a language or linguistics class are allowed to check out up to three videos or CDs at one time. They may borrow each item for up to 14 days.

Equipment Lending Policy

Faculty members are permitted to check out equipment for up to one week.

Returns and Renewals

Borrowed materials must be returned to the Lab's Circulation Desk or placed in the drop slot by the due date.

Overdue, Lost, Damaged, or Unreturned Items

In the event that an item is not returned within 72 hours of the due date or is returned damaged, the borrower will be charged a replacement fee. Please see chart for details.

Please note that our supply of A/V equipment is very limited, and is meant only as a back-up to the range of services provided by the Classroom Educational Technology Services (CETS). If you need equipment regularly or know your equipment needs two or more days in advance, we ask that you contact CETS (7-7491). You can make a request using their online request form or visit them in ICC 121.

Reserving the Technology Classroom (ICC 227)

To reserve ICC 227 on a day-to-day basis, contact Peter Janssens. A Lab Assistant (in ICC 224) is also able to assist you in determining when the room is free. If you are a first-time user, you must first make an appointment with Peter Janssens for a brief orientation on using the classroom's equipment.

To reserve ICC 227 for an entire semester, email Peter Janssens to make your request. Notification to begin reserving the room is sent out to FLL faculty and staff members before the Fall and for Spring terms. (Final exam weeks are treated differently from the regular semester, so a separate request must be made for this time period.) Every instructor is permitted to request one reservation per class per week. However, flexibility is asked from all instructors in order to accommodate as many requests as possible. Since reservations are handled on a first-come, first served basis, instructors are encouraged to reserve early.

Reasonable advance notification of "no-show" by a class must be provided by the instructor or TA. The first "no-show" without notification for a reserved lab will be discussed with the person reserving the room. Any additional "no-shows" without notification may result in cancellation of remaining reservations for that semester.
