Cameras, digital voice recorders, video cameras, tripods, Mac chargers, Mac/PC adapters, and headphones are available for loan to the HGSE community at the Main Desk on the second floor of Gutman Library.

Support and instruction for using equipment is available from the IT Service Center on the third floor of Gutman Library.

In addition to the equipment available at Gutman Library, Lamont Library is now offering a pilot Movie Gear loan program that includes cameras, microphones, data storage, lighting equipment, and a backdrop. Students are advised to call the Lamont Circulation Desk at 617-495-2452 to check availability first.

Instructional Media Services in the Science Center basement will loan a camera for about $10/hr or $50 a day, and a tripod for a bit more. It may be less for class work. IMS: http://ims.fas.harvard.edu/equipment-rental
