Equipment Loans

Equipment is available from the Scott Library (on the Keele Campus) for use by instructors and students. At present, we are limited to working directly with faculty members who would like their students to use these tools for assignments and projects. Online booking for York community members is coming soon!

If you work or study at the Glendon campus, note that our colleagues at the Glendon Digital Media Lab also have equipment and a lab available!
