Digital Media Lab
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.
