SEM User Fees and Booking

Booking Time on the SEM:

Users should contact the technician, Sharon Lackie, by e-mail to book time on the SEM.  Most often people book a morning (9:00-1:00) time slot, or afternoon (1:00-4:30) time slot, however other time durations can be accommodated.  Users are charged based on the time they actually use.
