Instructional Technology and Media Services
(ITMS) provides departments and individuals within the university with a
number of audio and visual media, equipment, and production services.
To obtain these services, please refer to the following policies and procedures.
Presentation Equipment Support
ITMS assists faculty with classroom
technology and projection needs, and provides audiovisual equipment support
for classroom use, academic conferences, institutes, and public events
held on campus. There is no charge to university departments for equipment
use as long as the loan is connected with legitimate university coursework, research or administrative functions. Special fees may apply to conferences,
camps, and other activities.
Equipment is available on a first-come,
first-serve basis and instructional use takes priority over all other
requests. Portable laptops for short-term instructional use such as professional development, conferences and special projects are available
through Information Systems. They
are loaded Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint. Laptops can be
checked out for up to one week through the help desk. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Data projectors, screens and other audio-visual equipment is not available for off-campus use.
ITMS maintains a collection of
DVDs, videotapes, audio tapes, audio CDs, and records to support
classroom instruction, faculty and student research, and general campus
viewing. Research is available for locating
and acquiring films and tapes not currently in the Whitworth collection.
Regional, national, and international
television programming is available for viewing in the ITMS area of Harriet Cowles Library. Cable television shows meeting the academic needs of faculty may be recorded upon request and under copyright may be kept for up to 45 days for personal viewing. Please request the recording within three days of the actual airing of the show.
We provide audio, DVD, and video conversion and duplication for academic needs.
