This form is for Cedar Crest College Faculty and Staff Audio/Visual Services and/or Media requests. (Equipment and Media will be provided based on availability). This form is sent to AV Services and the Cressman Library via e-mail for requests of the use of Audio Visual Equipment and Materials at Cedar Crest College. Requests made using this form must be made 2 business days in advance. This allows AV Services time to set up any special requests and e-mail back with a confirmation. Requests are not considered confirmed until the customer receives a confirmation via e-mail from the AV or Library staff.

Please Note: A request form must be filled out separately for each course.

Due to limited manpower and equipment, AV Services does not support outdoor movies.  Cedar Crest College utilizes an outside vendor to setup, support and tear down these events.  Cost is covered by the department requesting the movie, and is approximately $950.00, not including the movie rental (to rent the movie, you must contact Media Services in the Library).
 
If you would like to request an outdoor movie be set up, please contact Judy Titus at x3560.
