Our Cinema programs are so big that my area has a media booker who (among
other things) books all rentals and keeps track of costs for the various
departments. The academic areas are responsible for paying the charges but
all the book-keeping is done for them. At the end of the academic year they
are given a report that summarizes the costs and titles rented for each
course. The academic areas are also responsible for transportation costs
which we track for them as well. In our case the rentals for Cinema amount
to about $35,000 CDN each year.
