Request Forms Fixed

During the last week of July, we discovered a previously unknown technical issue that was preventing our website from notifying us when our Appointment Request or Workshop Request forms were being used. We have fixed this issue and all forms are now operating normally. However, if you have previously filled out a form and have not yet received a response, please reach out to us via mediacommons@psu.edu.
We apologize for the issue and delay in communication and will work quickly to address your needs for the upcoming semester!

Whether in our teaching lab, your classroom, online – or some combination thereof, we’re here to meet you where you are.
