Long-term Equipment Loans for Remote Teaching and Learning
The Library is committed to providing students, faculty, and staff with access to the knowledge and tools they need to be successful while teaching and learning remotely. In that spirit, the Library and OIT have collaborated to expand and modify our Library checkout to include additional equipment with term-long checkouts.
- Chromebooks (limited availability)
- Document cameras
- Wacom tablets
- Dell Windows laptops (limited availability)
Long-term equipment loans check out for six weeks, but can be renewed through the My Accounts page as needed. Both laptops and Chromebooks have access to core academic software, either pre-installed or through OIT’s VLab, virtual computer lab environment. All software required for fall term is being made available.
Equipment can be checked out now at the Circulation Desk during our open hours. If you are not able to come to campus, equipment can be mailed to a permanent address through our Home Delivery form. Due to extremely limited supply, Windows laptops and Chromebooks are not currently available for Home Delivery.
Short-term Laptop Loans for Library Use
Dell Windows laptops can be checked out in-person at the Circulation Desk for short-term use on a first-come, first-serve basis. Short-term laptops check out for three hours and must remain in the Library. These laptops require an ODIN login and come pre-installed with core academic software.
Graphing calculators can be checked out in-person at the Circulation Desk for short-term use on a first-come, first-serve basis. Calculators check out for three hours and cannot be renewed.
