    Media Request Forms (Faculty Only)

  • Media Policies and Procedures

  • Audiovisual Media/Equipment

    If you wish to schedule use of any audiovisual material or equipment, submit your request online or in person to the Media Office.  One form per date and time is required.  Requests should be submitted at least two working week days before the use date to ensure delivery.  An email is sent from the Media Office to the address provided, which either confirms, seeks clarification or informs you of the unavailability of your request.

    We deliver your scheduled item(s) to the room you designated prior to the start time and pickup after the class ends.  Small equipment items (e.g. video cameras, classroom “clickers”) are an exception; they must be picked up from and returned to the Media Office by a faculty/staff member.

    To arrange previewing of the colleges videos, contact the Media Office at 410-386-8346 or visit L189.

    Videography Requests

    High-definition digital camcorders are available for faculty and student use. In addition, the Media Services staff creates a plan each year to be able to prioritize and meet as many of the college community’s videography and video creation needs as possible. To request that your project be included in this plan, submit your request online. Requests should be submitted no less than six weeks in advance of the event to increase the probability for approval. This information will assist us to accommodate as many events as practical by the best means possible.

    The Event Organizer shall be responsible for getting all signed Release and Authorization Forms to Media Services before the event begins. No video recording may proceed without this signed consent from each participant. The Release and Authorization Forms may be picked up in the Media Office (L189). Allow enough time to send and receive signed release form(s).

    Video Project Requests

    We are committed to supporting faculty in the use of multimedia to meet instructional objectives. Examples of multimedia projects range from using lecture-capture for on-site courses* to incorporating streaming videos from the college’s collection into Blackboard, with an emphasis on distance courses.

    For assistance in meeting your instructional goals, submit your request online for each individual project that has been identified. Projects typically require 10-15 business days to complete. 

    To assist the college in remaining compliant with Fair Use and copyright laws, you need to provide a brief rationale/learning objective on how your selection of all or part of DVD material will be used in the distance course to help students meet the course's objectives. Only Carroll students enrolled in your course can access streaming videos, based on the start/end dates of a specific term.

    *Faculty who teach on-site courses and want to lecture-capture or stream a DVD online, should contact the Library/Media Associate at 410-386-8346 or for an initial consultation.

    Carroll Students - Borrowing/Checking-Out

    Borrowing/Check-Out of Audiovisual Media

    The Media Office houses videos predominately for in-class use. They can be viewed by any patron only within the Library.

    Borrowing/Check-Out of Camcorders

    The Media Office houses digital camcorders for Carroll students to use on class assignments. You will be asked to sign a Camera Equipment Checklist detailing the specific items/accessories you receive and acknowledging your liability for any missing or damaged items. The typical loan period is six days. If possible, return as soon as you have retrieved your footage, so equipment can be available for other needs. Late fees will accrue after the due date.

    Computer Graphic Design classes have specific cameras available from the Learning Technologies Support Office (A216).
