Equipment Support

Limited support is available for equipment and specialized workstation users. We highly encourage faculty and teaching assistants to utilize the STAP program for audio and video project support. Most support Mann Library offers is in the form of self help materials, including manuals and quick guides (click item description in table above for links). If you are using one of the Apple applications (e.g. iMovie, iDVD, or Final Cut), the Apple Support site may be helpful, including iMovie tutorials iDVD tutorials. We also encourage users to look at instructional opportunities at Cornell, including Mann, CIT and ATC workshops.
