Equipment Checkout

Video and Audio Checkout

Bunnell 101

UAF Communication & Journalism provides our current students with a wide range of video and audio equipment for checkout.  Students are provided regular access to state-of-the-art equipment to produce video news packages, radio interviews, documentary films along with other creative projects. 

Checkout Procedure

  • Students seeking to check out departmental equipment for upcoming assignments should drop by our offices in 101 Bunnell and speak with our administrative assistant, Courtney Pagh.  When Courtney is unavailable for checkout, J. Jason Lazarus, our computer and darkroom tech, can assist you in 114 Bunnell.  Students are expected to provide their University ID Card (Polar Express) and fill out an equipment agreement form prior to checking out any gear.
  • Students will be expected to return gear in the same working condition that it was given to them.  It is the student's responsibility to insure gear is in working order when they check out the kit for liability reasons, but each piece of gear is thoroughly tested by our staff after each individual check-in to insure students are receiving fully functional gear.
  • Loss or damage of Communication & Journalism equipment is the responsibility of the student who checked out the equipment. 
  • Students are expected to return gear on time.  Failure to do so will result in penalties, beginning with loss of reservation privileges and concluding in the potential loss of all checkout privileges.
  • Checkout hours are dependent on staff on-hand, but most days, equipment is available for checkout between 8AM and 3PM, Monday through Friday. 

Reservations

Students may request equipment reservations for one week in advance of their equipment need.  Please contact, via email, our department staff member, J. Jason Lazarus at jjlazarus@alaska.edu to arrange a reservation.  Students must specifically denote which gear they need and it will be set aside for them, as long as supplies exist.
