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.
Windows and Chromebook laptops are both available for a check out all term. 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.
Visit the Circulation Desk to check out a wifi hotspot or use the home delivery request form and we will place you on the hotspot waitlist. During spring term, we will check out hotspots for the entire term. The wifi hotspots come with a 100GB limit on data. Please remember the hotspots are for educational purposes only.
Remote Instruction/Meeting Equipment
For summer 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.
- Document Camera (Faculty/Instructional use only)
Texas Instruments is offering a free 90 day trial for their virtual calculator emulators that will work on almost all systems. Sign up for the free virtual calculator emulators trial.
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.
Chargers, Cables, Misc. Items (suspended)
Basic equipment borrowing is being suspended while Library hours remain limited (chargers, video adapters, pocket projectors, etc.). Expect service to resume as health officials provide further guidance.
