  • First-come first-served basis
  • An equipment agreement form (available in the library) must be filled out prior to checkout of 3 day devices. 





Use a laptop anywhere in our libraries, including multimedia group study rooms. 

Checkout a Tablet, iPad, Chromebook or eReader for 3 days. 

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

Check the location and tentative availability of reserve equipment. For example, if the location is TRUAX-RES, the item may be available for use at the Truax Library. 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 three day equipment. 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 3 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.
