Does Media Services do large quantity print jobs?

The media lab does not provide regular-sized black & white or color printing services. However, there several large-capacity printers on campus that can service your request for as little as .10 cents per copy. Contact the IT Helpdesk at 563-333-6368 for more information.


Can students check out equipment?

In order to check out equipment from the media lab, students will need a faculty or staff member to provide approval for the purpose of the loan. Please note that faculty/staff approval does not guarantee that the loan request will be granted.  


I need to pay for a poster to be printed. Can I charge it to my print account?

Unfortunately, the poster printer is not connected to the print management system. Posters are payable by cash, check, or department transfer code.


I have a cassette or VHS tape I would like converted to digital or DVD. How do I do that?

Email the media services department with specifics on your request. Please note that we are not able to transfer or copy multimedia that is copyright-protected unless specific, written permission has been obtained from the copyright holder and/or the length of the clip request meets copyright compliance guidelines.
