LSA Instructional Support Services has two equipment loan centers on the University of Michigan's Central Campus where LSA instructors, faculty, staff, and UM students enrolled in an LSA course may check out a wide variety of audio/visual and camera/video equipment for short-term loan (additional paperwork is required for any long-term loan request to be considered; please visit one of our two loan centers for more detail). Staff at our loan centers will gladly provide basic training and in-house support for anyone using our equipment.
