To be able to book equipment out from the Media Store, you must first log into the media store booking system, which can be found here:

Please log into this website using your University of Sheffield login and password. Once you have done this, your account needs to be activated by one of the Media Store team. We do this every morning at around 9:00, so please make sure you log into the booking system as soon as possible. You won’t be able to access or book any equipment until your account is activated

Bookings should be created online prior to coming to the media store. You are able to book equipment out for 24 hours at a time, however we do not work weekends so you are also able to take kit out on Friday and bring it back Monday. If you need to take anything out for longer, you will need permission from a tutor first. 

When booking equipment out please read the terms and conditions at least once as they are very important. Key rules include:

  • Late returns result in a suspension from the store, it can also prevent other students from using the equipment, so don’t do it. 
  • Its your responsibility to check equipment when you receive it, so the first thing you should do with kit is make sure everything is there and working properly. Any issues should be reported to me ASAP. I do check as well but I can miss things. 
  • If equipment is damaged or lost when taken out, you must report it to as soon as possible.

There is also the Journotech website which is found here: contains a whole bunch of information and tutorials on filming and software. 

If you need any help with the equipment or have any questions, or if you want a Journotech tutorial on something, let me know!

The media store is located on the 3rd floor next to Newsroom 3.
