I read with interest the posts about media checkouts to students by
academic librarians; would any care to share your institution's policies
on checking out audio visual equipment (vhs decks, dvd players,
televisions, video projectors, laptops) by students? We require faculty
signature for any equipment checkouts (anything leaving our office). Is
that usual with universities?

I know this is outside most librarian's responsibilities, but any
information would be appreciated. Thanks!
