Step 2
If you plan to use our equipment, after your complete appropriate training, you will be eligible to sign up using theonline schedule for use of the equipment during the regular hours of operation, Monday-Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm.

Step 3
Once you become an experienced user, equipment time may be booked during non-business hours as well.

Booking and Cancellation Policies
You can book time on an EM and related tools up to two weeks in advance. We do ask that you give us at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel your session, either by calling us or by cancelling your booking on the website. Please be considerate of our other users, and cancel your session as soon as you know you can not make your scheduled time. If you fail to turn up, or are late without prior notice, your time slot will be forfeited after 30 minutes and somebody else may use the microscope. Please note that repeated failure to notify EM staff of cancelation may result in the suspension of user privileges in the EMRC.
