Borrow equipment 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. 

To maintain social distancing practices, equipment will be mailed to a permanent address. For students who live on-campus and are unable to receive packages, contact circ@pdx.edu to make alternate arrangements.


Laptop Borrowing (Spring Term)

Windows and Chromebook laptops are both available. Both have access to core academic software, either pre-installed or through OIT’s VLab, virtual computer lab environment. All software required for spring term is being made available.

For at least Spring term, additional equipment is now available to support remote instruction, remote meetings, and other video conferencing and connectivity needs. These items are also available for pickup or mail-to-address.

Audio/Visual Equipment (limited to faculty)

AV equipment borrowing is limited to faculty who need these items for teaching remotely (camcorders, tripods, audio records, etc.). Expect service to resume as health officials provide further guidance.
