Equipment Checkout

The UO Libraries Center for Media and Educational Technologies (CMET) lends equipment and provides services to UO faculty, staff and students for purposes directly related to University of Oregon courses. There is no charge to borrow equipment for these purposes. CMET does not provide equipment for non-instructional use. "Non-instructional" is defined as events that are not CRN classes, or are not directly related to a CRN class.

Non-instructional or non-course related equipment may be available from UO Scheduling & Event Services (541-346-6000 or, for on-campus events.  However, that equipment is not available for check-out, but is delivered, operated and managed by the Scheduling and Event Services staff.
