Using a Wireless (Lavalier) Microphone

1. Obtain the keys

The equipment cabinet key may be requested by departments or by faculty teaching in this room. Classroom keys and building master keys do not open these locks. Departments with faculty or staff needing access to the AV /computer equipment may want to have a key in their department office available for checkout. Or faculty and staff who make frequent use of classroom equipment may want to request a key for their personal use. In either case, a key request card must be completed, signed by the Dean or Department Head, and delivered to Facilities Management Key Shop. " AV Cabinets" must be printed at the top of the card to specify that the requested key is for the equipment cabinet and not for the room itself. A separate key request card for the room must be completed to obtain a room key.

2. Locate and turn on the wireless unit

A lavalier type wireless microphone unit is located in the podium or A.V. equipment cabinet at the front of the room. Take it out and place it on you in the position you prefer for your presentation.
