Media Loan- Lab Aides Gone Wild


Media Loan has always been a big part of Lib+! We wanted to show you how devoted our Media Loan Lab Aides are through Photographs of them and their favorite media toys all conveniently found at Media Loan just down the hall from the current Gallery installation.

Media Loan is a very special place and the only one of its kind in the country.

They are a diverse ground of students and staff supporting media centric and non-media centric programs/classes on campus. Media Loan is currently circulating 6,417 media items, they have performed 5,893 check outs and supported 307 instructional media workshops in the last academic year! Yes, that’s A LOT!

Media Loan is a FREE service to ALL: students, faculty, and staff of the College. They even serve members of the Olympia community. Media Loan’s staff loves what they do very much and are very dedicated to making everyone’s loaning experience pleasant, instructive, and fun! You do not need to be “a pro”, or know the name of all “the stuff” on Media Loan’s shelves. They can teach you how to use the equipment, how to put it together, how it works, why it doesn’t work, and they can help you with your projects. The Media Loan Services instructional support team has experts in audio, video, photography, 3D printing, post-production software’s, and even 2D/3D animation!

Media Loan has EVERYTHING YOU NEED to serve your creativity and will help you figure it out. Stop by and ask them!
