FYI: Equipment sign-out crackdown

Greetings to all,

As you all know, we have a new electronic equipment program that tracks equipment check-out, return and inventory.

This is a quick note to let you know that we have reached the point in the semester where students should not be turning in their equipment late. We have given reminders and been patient with the implementation of our new equipment tracking program. Please reiterate to your students that equipment is due on the date and time they have on their reservations. If they neglect to turn their equipment in on time their privileges will be revoked for the remainder of the semester - per Dean Callahan’s directive and the contract the students signed at the beginning of this semester.

Below is just a small, recent example of two unnamed students who have turned their equipment in late.

Equipment: Electro-Voice 635A Handheld Mic
Due In: 9/27/07 9:00:00 PM
Returned: 10/1/07 12:08:48 PM

Equipment: Panasonic AG-DVX100BP DV Camera
Due In: 10/2/07 12:00:00 PM
Returned: 10/3/07 9:33:11 AM

Thanks for your assistance in this matter,
