Sample Letter: Equipment Inquiry


I’m working on the Independent Media Committee organizing an archiving workshop during AMIA this year. We are working with the Austin History Center and their film collection. At the moment we are trying to coordinate a film inspection and rehousing component. I was wondering if I could count you as a possible source for additional equipment. We need 16mm rewinds, split reels, fixed reels, and splicers. I understand if this goes against Ransom Center’s policy.

I’m willing to sign an agreement to ensure secure storage and transport. The workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, November 15th at the Austin History Center. I personally can pick up the items and return them on the same day.

Please let me know if you can help.

Thanks so much for your consideration.
