Video Recordings

Women video recording an event

IMATS provides video recording for Course Lectures and Events on Barnard's campus.


This service is for Barnard-affiliated faculty and staff ONLY.

IMATS does not provide video recording services for student groups or individual students. 


Faculty and staff members are required to fill out the Video Request Form. All requests must be made at least 2 weeks in advance! See below for specific policies regarding our different services:

Course Lectures

For the majority of class lectures, an audio recording is simplest and most efficient method to provide access to content. Faculty members can fill out the Equipment Request Form to reserve and pick up the equipment. IMATS staff can provide training and assistance as needed. When the equipment is returned, IMATS staff can help upload the file to CourseWorks.

  • For a weekly service, we ask that you contact IMATS Assistant, Karl-Mary Akre at
  • During religious holidays, we ask that faculty members please book ahead of time or use audio recordings since we will be very busy with multiple video recordings at the same time.
