Individuals wishing to check out equipment MUST have their EagleCard to request equipment.


While in possession of checked-out equipment:

  • borrowers are responsible for ensuring that the equipment is returned in operating condition.
  • borrowers are responsible for their own data. We recommend saving data to portable or cloud-based storage solutions.  We cannot guarantee that data left on a device will be recoverable at a future date. All files will be erased after the computer is returned. 
  • borrowers must return the technology to a Technology Checkout staff member. No items should be left unattended at either Technology Checkout or the Library Circulation Desk.

Fines

Fines are assessed on items that are kept beyond the checkout duration. The amount of the fine depends on the item and the length of time that item is overdue.

Learning Commons Support

In addition to offering equipment for checkout to the campus community, Technology Checkout also provides assistance with any issues patrons may experience while using the equipment in the Library Commons, i.e. projectors and displays in study rooms, computers in the Library Commons lab, etc. 

If you experience issues while using equipment in the Library Commons, please report it to one of the Technology Checkout staff members.  They will do their best to assist you and restore the normal operation of equipment as soon as possible.
