All of the library's equipment is available at the Check-Out & Reserves Desk on the first floor.
Guidelines for equipment use
For more information about our borrowing policies, see our Borrow & Renew page.
- If there is a problem with the equipment you've checked out, please bring it to the Check-Out & Reserves Desk.
- You are responsible for any damage that happens to the equipment while it is in your possession. In the case of unintentional damage, you will be charged a replacement fee. Intentional damage is also subject to disciplinary action, as outlined in the Student Handbook.
- You can use the laptop anywhere in the library building—this includes spaces like the Lake Effect Café and the Writing Center. However, our laptops are not permitted outside of the building.
- While most equipment cannot be renewed, laptops can be renewed once if no one is waiting to check one out.
- Anything saved to the laptop will be erased when you log off.
