Reserving a Camera

Using cameras, computers, and other equipment in the Social Work Library

Social Work Library Cameras

The Social Work Library has three Canon cameras and tripods for School of Social Work faulty, staff, and student use only. 

You can borrow these for two-hour intervals for use on campus. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your reservation and don't let us know, we will allow another group to use the camera. Cameras are available only during regular library hours and cannot be checked out overnight. 

Please remember that someone else may have reserved a camera at the end of your two-hour period, so return it on time.

To make a reservation go to Canvas > Social Work Central > Reserve a Study Room/Camera.

Walk-in requests are accepted if cameras are available, but to ensure availability we strongly recommend that you make a reservation. 

Library staff are here to help if you have any questions about the cameras.  Instructions on using the cameras and burning a DVD will also be given to you when you check out a camera. 

Other Cameras on Campus

Media Technology Services (MTS), which is located across the street in Campion Hall Room G-03, has digital video cameras and tripods for loan. These can be borrowed for 24 hours and over the weekend, and can be taken off campus.

Visit MTS during regular business hours to reserve a camera and a tripod. 

You may also use your own personal cameras or other device with video capabilities, e.g., your own laptop or smartphone.

Please note that cameras from locations other than the Social Work Library are not likely to be compatible with the library’s DVD burning procedure.  If you use a non-Social Work Library camera or device, you are responsible for burning your own DVD.  For more information on burning a DVD, see the tab Burning a DVD.

Using Macs to record your video

Many students choose to use their own devices (e.g., Macs or smart phones) to record their videos.

Video submissions can be accepted via Google Drive, YouTube, Panopto or physical DVD. Check with your instructor to ensure you are using the instructor's preferred medium for submission.

Using Panopto to submit your video

Please refer to the attached document for instruction on how to submit your video assignment to Panoto.
