How far in advance do I have to reserve equipment?
One week before you would like to borrow it.
For how long can I reserve equipment?
How can I reserve equipment for more than a week?
Usually you cannot reserve equipment for more than a week but if there are circumstances where you have to (e.g. the session where you supposed to videotape your teaching has been rescheduled), you have to summit another request via the online form. Put in the notes the special circumstances why you have to reserve the equipment again.
