*If the checkout is done less than 5hrs before the closing of the GTC, the item must be returned by closing time   unless an extension has been approved. Those that intentionally fail to return the items on time will be fined accordingly.

If students need items longer than the time allowed they must bring a signed document from a faculty member, department chairperson, or contact the Director of the GTC and request permission.

If faculty or staff need items longer than the time allowed, an extension can be arranged by contacting:

**AV equipment must be turned in on time and the individual or organization will be wholly responsible for the condition of said items. Upon inspection of the returned items, all damages or replacement will be billed to the signer of the checkout agreement.

Below is a link to the beta version of the GTC Equipment Reservation link. The submission of a request does not mean that the request will be fulfilled. Fulfillment or rejection of said request will be notified to the submitter via email by the director or assigned proxy. 

To clear any possible confusion, the GTC's role is to maintain a checkout system allowing users access to a finite stock of AV inventory.  Due to limited staff, the GTC does not deliver the requested equipment. The person checking out the equipment is responsible for the transportation and setup of said items.  Large events sponsored or hosted by EIU, may need guidance in how to manage complex audio video events. The recommendation is to contact Christopher Burke, cbburke@eiu.edu, Sound Engineer at Doudna Fine Art Center.
