Borrowing equipment

Modified on Fri, 23 Oct 2020 at 10:31 AM

Below is a list of available equipment for loan from Information Technology for Lesley events, meetings and classes. Reservations are required in advance of borrowing equipment. Equipment reservations will only be honored when reserved via the reservation form and must be made two weeks prior to your class or event (see the Technology Event Support Policy).  Equipment reserved outside required two weeks notice time frame cannot be guaranteed and is available on a first come first serve basis.

All equipment is available by pick up only, with the exception of the Laptop Cart, which is delivered by Physical Plant. Individuals & their departments are responsible for the security and well-being of the equipment once it is in their possession. Filling out the reservation form binds this agreement each time the equipment is loaned out.

Circulating Equipment

We currently have fifteen MacBook Pros loaded with macOS and various productivity application.

If your room is not equipped with a projector, we have three compact, portable projector kits available. The projector has the following inputs: VGA, Composite, HDMI, DisplayLink, LitePort, and Audio In. The kit includes the following items: projector, power cable, VGA cable and HDMI cable. If you are using a Mac, please remember to check out an adapter if you do not already own one.

Projection Screen
Our projection screens are portable, 6’ DA-LITE screens, best suited for small to medium sized audiences.

Document Camera
A document camera is often used in place of an overhead projector (which we no longer have/support at the university), though it has many other uses. Connected to a projector (just like your computer) the document camera is essentially a fixed camera that will display what is put underneath of it. You can place three-dimensional objects below it, overhead transparencies, written or printed notes, etc. The kit comes with the following: document camera, VGA cable, power cable, and instructions on basic usage.

Some rooms have wired microphones permanently installed in lecterns, and some rooms have wireless microphone systems installed (though these wireless microphones still need to be checked out from IT). At times, however, you may need to check out wired and wireless microphones to be used with a portable PA system, for example, or in a room that is equipped with microphone inputs. We have the following microphones available for reservation: wired microphones, wireless handhelds, wireless lavalieres.

Laptop Cart

The laptop cart is a great resource for teachers that need access to digital resources in their classroom, but are not scheduled in rooms with installed computers. The laptop cart is equipped with 19 MacBook Pros loaded with both OSX (Mac) and Windows operating systems and a wireless printer that can be accessed by each of the computers.

Portable PA System
The Portable PA System is an easy to use, all-in-one, high-quality sound system with built in wireless microphones. A brief video outlining its features and usage can be found here:
