For Spring 2021, a limited number of laptop computers / tablets are available for semester-long loan to faculty and students in need. The Scholarships and Financial Aid Office will review student requests to confirm need. For consideration, please email with your full name, ID number and preference of Mac or Windows laptop or Microsoft Surface tablet. The Library will only be checking out laptops and tablets to students approved by the Scholarships and Financial Aid Office. We will not be checking out laptops for short term (four hour) loans. All computers and chargers must be returned no later than May 7.

All borrowers of laptops or tablets must sign a Responsibility Agreement acknowledging that they accept responsibility for overdue fines and costs for replacement/repair of equipment that is returned damaged, or is lost.
