Equipment Room @ MEJO: Home

What is in this Guide?

This guide provides information about checking out and using equipment from the Equipment Room at the Hussman School of Journalism and Media. The Equipment Room lends photo-, video- and audio-journalism equipment to students enrolled in specific courses at the School of Media and Journalism.

This guide has pages for:

  • Community Standards & Policies - make sure you know the equipment room policies! The Orientation Quiz is also on this page.
  • How To Check Out Equipment - instructions and how-to videos about making bookings in the reservation system we use, called Connect2
  • Manage Bookings - this page has most of the information you need to answer the questions on the orientation quiz: tips for managing your bookings and getting the gear you need, info about how long you can borrow gear for (usually 3 days!), and how to renew your gear
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN) - very important info about how to access Connect2 from off-campus
  • Equipment Manuals - instruction manuals for most of our equipment in searchable PDFs!
  • Equipment Video Tutorials - online tutorials about using some of the equipment in our collection

If you are not affiliated with the Hussman School of Journalism and Media and wish to borrow audio / visual equipment, check the Media Resources Center at the Undergraduate Library.

Remove your card - it's not hard!

Remove your storage card from your camera! We will erase all cards left in cameras at check-in.
