Equipment Loan Program
The Digital Media Lab was first introduced at Loyola University Chicago in the Richard J. Klarchek Information Commons as a place to put digital media in the hands of students at no cost. We've expanded to offer a Digital Media Lab at the Water Tower Campus. In keeping with our goal of providing technology at a low cost, Digital Media Services offers a no-charge equipment loan program, including one-on-one equipment/usage consultations.
Faculty are integrating technology into their assignments and connecting to the curriculum in new ways. As a result, students use the technology to support not only their classroom assignments, but also personal work. From classroom presentations with custom illustrations to integrated team-developed online videos, students have developed a number of innovative projects that keep the campus on the cutting edge.
Unique Client Reach
Digital Media Services has implemented a number of policies to ensure that equipment is available to as many students, faculty and staff as possible. Based on the current enrollement, as well as faculty and staff counts, the following metric assesses the percentage of unique clients utilizing the loan program to the total population.
Equipment Loaned By Time of Day
Long-Term Loan equipment is loaned out at it's highest frequency between 11:00am - 1:00pm and 2:00pm - 4:00pm. Alternatively, Short-Term Loan equipment is more frequently loaned between 1:00pm - 3:00pm and 8:00pm - 10:00pm. The chart below documents our overall frequency averages by time of day by type of loan. Total volumes (including hours of loan and total loan counts) of equipment loan have been removed as this is a proprietary data point.
