The 3rd floor laptop desk now loans a small number of Dell laptops for 7 days. We also recently acquired wireless/Bluetooth mice that students can borrow until the laptop desk closes.
Also, we have new portable DVD players for loan from the circulation desk. These loan for 7 days and connect to a computer/monitor via USB.
If students ask for these items at the reference desk, please direct them to us. Thank you.
The laptop desk now loans laptop adapters for students who have their laptop but forgot their adapter. These are available for 3 hour loans.
We have adapters for Mac Air, Macbook Pro, Dell XPS and Dell Latitude laptops.
We also have phone changers for iPhone and Android model phones. These also loan for 3 hours.
Starting today, we will be loaning Bose noise-cancelling headphones from the circulation desk. These will be same-day loans, due back 10 min before the desk closes.
We can offer them to students looking for headphones but I think it’s also a good idea to offer them to folks who are looking for a quiet study space but aren’t a part of a group.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Jeffrey Lynch, the manager of the Technology Loan Desk, announced the following today:
We now have phone chargers to loan from the laptop desk: five Android chargers & five iPhone chargers. The loan period is two hours with no renewals.
The overdue fee is $5/day and the replacement cost is $40 plus a $25 service fee.
