New Equipment for Loan!

equipment items collageThe Library Tech Commons Team is very proud to offer a comprehensive collection of video and audio equipment for loan, free of charge, to UCSF students, staff and faculty. Our equipment is used ever day for a variety of projects, including interviews, medical demonstrations, and even student skits. We listened to your feedback, and have added new items to the collection!

Among the new additions are a state-of-the-art LED light kit, two new digital audio recorders, a dual wireless mic kit (yes, mic-up two subjects at the same time!), and high-quality handheld mics and a shotgun mic for advanced users. For each new item, there is also an accompanying online help document to get you up-and-running quickly:

  1. Westcott LED Lights
  2. Zoom H2n
  3. Zoom H5
  4. Azden Wireless Mics
  5. Sure Handheld Mics
  6. Azden Shotgun Mic
  7. Gitzo Boom Pole

The full list is available on our Support Center website, and includes video cameras, external hard drives for video projects, tripods and more.

Please help us maintain this service (which, at many other institutions, isn’t free), by reviewing the help documentation before you arrive to pick up the equipment, and by treating our equipment with care.

If you have any questions, or suggestions for us to improve this service, please do not hesitate to contact us. We welcome your feedback!

PS: Also coming soon… a new reservation system that will allow you to view an availability calendar and make your own reservations. Stay tuned for another announcement this Fall!
