Digital Cameras, Video Cameras, iPod Touches, Tripods, Memory Card Reader
24-hour checkout to students and faculty/staff.
Check out all the bar-coded pieces when checking an item out. (Flip cameras have only one barcode; no removable battery.)
Make sure to include the appropriate battery when a camera is checked out. To be sure you have the right battery, go ahead and insert it in the camera after scanning the barcode.
When checking a camera in, ask the patron to wait while you check everything in to make sure nothing is missing. When you are done checking all the pieces in, click on the patron's name to see if there are any camera parts yet listed on their account. If there are any, determine if you missed a barcode or if the person failed to put the item back in the bag. Inform them if there is still an item missing. If they have left, inform the Circulation Supervisor and attach a note to the bag explaining what item(s) we are waiting for to come back and leave the camera on the table.
When checking a camera in, remove the battery from the bag and place it in the appropriate charger on the battery-charger table.
After checking an iPod Touch in, place it on the circulation supervisor's desk so it can be re-imaged before the next checkout.
There are smaller desk tripods for use with the webcams, iPod touches, iPad mini's, iPads, and cameras. They are stored in a wire basket next to the public address system.
The memory card reader container is stored next to the camera batteries.
