Equipment in the research self-service model can be utiliized by members of the campus and external community. Note that this equipment often resides in a faculty member's lab and access to it is governed by that faculty member's policies. Terrapin Works provides support for this equipment through maintenance and occassionally through staffing of lab space. In some cases, equipment is managed fully by Terrapin Works (e.g. the Nanoscribe Photonic Professional GT) and a user group comprised of various faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students is provided access to the equipment.
