To our valued patrons...

5th June 2019  - We are going to charge a $50 daily late fee on all of our “pro-tier” equipment items borrowed such as DSLRs, boom mics, tripods, projectors, etc. up to a maximum of $150. We highly value your patronage and we believe these measures, agreed upon by the library administration, will help to ensure the timely return of our pro-tier equipment, giving all our patrons better access to our equipment.

Interactive Media

These are interactive 3D models that are based on the WebGL and WebVR platforms. You can rotate and zoom into the 3D models on your computer, mobile browser or a Virtual Reality headset. We can help you to build 3D models for use on your websites, virtual reality and augmented reality applications.
