IMD Guidelines

Guidelines for Media Services Requests

Submission of Requests for media services during normal business hours (7:30 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday) will be honored at no charge. Projects that require work outside these hours will be charged back to the requestor at the overtime rate of the employee providing the service.

Media Services will use the following priority list when scheduling services:

  • Large-scale, official college-wide events, e.g., graduation, convocation, professional development activities
  • Full-time faculty credit instructional projects
  • Adjunct faculty credit instructional projects
  • Full-time faculty instructional research and development projects
  • Non-credit instructional projects
  • Full-time staff media projects
  • College-sanctioned student activities projects, e.g., club and organization requests
  • College-sponsored community activities

Media equipment requests

In order to provide quality service, at least 2 working days notice is required via submission of the online Media Equipment Request Form

Media project requests

In order to provide quality service, at least 2 weeks notice prior to the deadline of any project is required. Please complete and submit the online Media Project Request Form to initiate the request. You will be contacted to confirm the project or if additional information is needed. Large-scale projects may require final approval by the Assistant Dean for Library Services and Learning Resources who will determine whether sufficient resources exist to undertake the project.
