How Do I Borrow Digital Cameras & Camcorders?

The Multimedia Learning Center (MLC) at Mohammed VI Library lends both digital cameras and camcorders to AUI students and faculty who are in possession of a valid Al Akhawayn ID card.

These items are available at the MLC on the first floor, through the staircase to the left of the Circulation Desk.

Camcorders and digital cameras are loaned to students and faculty to help them in their teaching and learning tasks. These items are check-out for one or two days. Students requesting equipment for academic projects must fill out a form obtained at the MLC.

Equipment that is returned after the expected due date will be subject to a ten (10) DH/ day late fee.
