the particular technology needs of each speaker and
be available to answer speakers' questions.
If you plan to record your event, each speaker should sign a release form prior to your event.
Do your speakers need overnight accommodations
and/or travel arrangements? If so, contact Lu
Ann Marshall as soon as possible to reserve
Do your speakers plan to use Powerpoint?
Media Services recommends organizing and
saving PowerPoint and other computer files to the
law school network in advance.
Do your speakers plan to work from a laptop?
If your speakers plan to bring files to the law school,
find out whether the file will be saved to floppy,
zip, CD/DVD, or USB. Please note that the law school
cannot readily accommodate zip disks on short notice.
Will any computer presentations have sound?
Include video? Will any speakers play an audiotape?
Videotape? DVD? CD? Letting Media Services know about
sound and video requirements in advance will help
your event run smoothly.
Determine whether your speakers will need
document cameras, slide projectors, overhead projectors,
easels, dry-erase boards or any other specialized
equipment. Requests for specialized equipment should
be made in advance of the event to ensure that the
equipment is available.
