Library Equipment

In-library and shorter-term checkout options

Students can borrow reserve equipment from our Library Help Desks. Some equipment is for use in the library only, but some can be checked out for short-term use outside the library. Ask a librarian for details on equipment loan periods.

In-Library Use Laptops 

Checkout a Tablet, iPad, Chromebook or eReader for 1 week 

ipadEquipment is available for students on a first come first served basis. We cannot guarantee availability or hold equipment for you. 

Check the location and tentative availability of reserve equipment. For example, if the status is available, the item may be available for use. If the location is CHECKED OUT, the item is in use by another student, or in maintenance.

Equipment Notes

An equipment agreement form needs to be updated yearly to check out devices. You will be asked to fill one out in the library.

We charge the batteries on each device after it is checked in if it is running low and all 7 day devices are checked out with chargers.  If the battery is running low while you are using an in-library only device, come up to the service desk to check out a charger.
