Due to the need to reduce time for direct contact and to allow enough time for part time lab assistants to get the required equipment ready and sanitized, we require that language instructors submit the request for equipment form or make a phone call before they come to pick up the equipment. Please avoid drop-in visits to the equipment room. Please use the following procedure to arrange for checking out and returning equipment. This document applies to Fall 2020 and will be updated as circumstances change.
