Classroom & Office Equipment

Contact the Audio-Visual Department for information on the nature and use of multimedia and computer equipment in the classrooms: LR208, ext. 37748

Use of Equipment

Individuals in every department or division are directly responsible for proper control of equipment assigned to them and must be able to account for that equipment throughout the year and during annual inventories. 

If an employee wants to take any item off campus they must have the approval of their immediate supervisor and department head and the Business Manager. All equipment must be checked out, using a 105-5 (Authorization and Custodial Record of Equipment Temporarily Removed From Campus), which is given to the Property & Distribution Manager in the Business Office after the approvals are obtained.  The equipment must be signed back in through the Property & Distribution Manager when the item is returned.    

Physical Inventory is conducted April 1 through June 1 every year. The results of the inventory is compiled for the College and for the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) in Richmond. Failure to properly account for equipment assigned to the campuses can result in severe financial penalty to the College and to the VCCS.

If you have any questions about the Business Office please email Sharon Shue.


There are three copying machines -- one is located in each Division and one is in the duplicating room on the second floor. You may use any of the copy machines. See your division office or the Business Office (ext. 562) for your department code. You will need to enter this code in the copy machine every time you use it. In addition to the copiers, many offices have fax machines that will copy one or two sheets quickly.  

NOVA has clear guidelines on copyrights. Check the Administrative Services Procedures Manual or the Faculty Handbook. In the Faculty Handbook, Copyright Regulations (Section 7.4000) are in Section 7, General Policies & Procedures. NOVA Copyright is also an excellent source for information.
