Equipment News and Announcements!

Expanded Equipment Pool!

The equipment sharing pool at Emory has grown!  In response to patron needs, we have expanded our collection in the most popular and heavily-used areas.  We now have twice as many point-and-shoot cameras, digital projectors, and Zoom digital audio recorders. We've also added updated equipment to our DSLR and Camcorder collections as well as additional handheld mics, tripods, and laptop chargers.

Even with this expanded collection, we still rely on YOU, our patrons to take care of this equipment and return it on time.  Only you can make this equipment sharing pool work.

Have a suggestion for something we missed?  Drop us a line and let us know and we'll look into adding it for the future!


MediaLab now open!


As of Fall 2015, the MediaLab is open in the Heilbrun Music and Media Library (on the 4th floor of the Woodruff Main Library building).  The space will be open whenever the Music and Media Library is open and it will be staffed for help with projects and creative endeavors Monday through Friday, noon until 8pm.  Check out all they have offer here.
