The library has over 100 laptops that are available for students to borrow for a one-week non-renewable loan. To use a laptop at home, you must first have logged in to it once while on campus. You can shut it down after that initial on-campus log-in. There are two self-service laptop lockers that allow you to borrow or return a laptop at any time the library is open. One locker is in the library foyer (floor 0A), and the other is in floor 0C.
By borrowing a laptop you agree to the following terms and conditions:
The library laptops do not automatically lock due to inactivity or battery failure. It is important, therefore, that whenever you are not using the laptop the screen is locked (at the least), and that you log out or properly shut down the laptop before you return it.
In general, our laptops have only a basic software suite installed on them. If you don't see the software you need in the list of programs, check the Software Center on the laptop to see if it can be installed. All laptops should have the same software on them. If you need particular software, we recommend that you check for it on the laptop you have borrowed before leaving the library.
