The University Multimedia Equipment Collection (UMEC) is a university-wide resource consisting of audio/video, photographic, and sound recording devices such as digital cameras, video recorders, microphones, and projectors. UMEC items are designed to support the entire Carnegie Mellon University campus community and so, unlike the IDeATe Lending collection, may be borrowed by any CMU student, faculty, or staff.
Inventory, location, and hours
Check the UMEC inventory for information on items available to borrow from this collection.
Borrowing responsibilities and late return policies
All patrons are required to be aware of and adhere to the UMEC Circulation Policy. Borrowers must have their Carnegie Mellon ID card ready to present when borrowing an item.
All students, faculty, and staff at Carnegie Mellon’s main Pittsburgh campus are eligible to borrow UMEC items.
Note that students enrolled in IDeATe courses also have access to the IDeATe Lending collection, which is subject to the IDeATe Lending Policy and is collocated with the University Multimedia Equipment Collection in Hunt A29. Although the two collections are collocated, they are currently operated separately.
