The Library Audio Visual Services Coordinator provides equipment and staffing support for Institute events.
Please observe Institute procedures for reserving spaces and using room reservation forms. The Institute’s room reservation form is a vital part of our event support management and record keeping.

In addition to the instructions provided with our equipment, further training with our Audiovisual Services Coordinator may be available by appointment. Contact the Audiovisual Services Coordinator at email@example.com

Do your students really know how to use the library? The library staff is always willing to provide instruction for your class. To schedule a library instruction session, please contact Laura Ponikvar, Image and Instructional Services Librarian, at email@example.com at least two weeks in advance.
In order for your student assistant or department TS to be able to check out library materials or audio visual equipment for you, we must have a current proxy form on file in the library. Please fill out the proxy form and return it to a library staff person.
If an item is not available through our local consortium catalog, please check the OhioLINK catalog and the Cleveland Public Library catalog before considering interlibrary loan. For help finding materials, please contact the library staff. Be prepared to provide as much information as possible, including author, title, publisher, date, and page numbers, as well as the location of the original citation. Please be aware that the owning library may charge a fee for lending a book or providing a photocopy. Submit questions or requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
