Due to the generosity of Marjorie I. Mitchell, Digital Collections has purchased new equipment to loan to NU faculty, staff and graduate students. Available equipment will include: a high definition Canon VIXIA camcorder, Flip MinoHD pocket camcorder, Edirol/Roland R-09HR high-definition audio recorder and a VuPoint Solutions “Magic Wand” Portable Scanner. The Canon VIXIA camera kits will include accessories such as a tripod, Canon DM-100 Directional Stereo Microphone, or Canon VFL-2 Light and Flash.
