EQUIPMENT POLICIES AT ARMSTRONG LIBRARY

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Items that can leave the Library:

Calculators: These have a four hour loan rule and may be taken outside of the Library.

Mac VGA Adapters: These are found in the same drawer as the calculators and have a 4 hour loan rule.  These are typically checked out with LCD projectors and may be taken out of the Library.

LCD Projectors: These are kept in the equipment cabinet in room 208 and have a loan period of one day.  If a patron walks in without booking an LCD projector beforehand, be absolutely sure that the one you check out to them does not have a booking that day or the following day.  To do this search “LCD Projector” as a title in Search\Holds,  double click the record with the corresponding number appearing on the projector, and click on the bookings tab when in the Item Record.  If it has a booking the dates of the booking will appear in the record.

Fac/Staff Loaner laptops: There are three Dell laptops and Three MacBooks that can be loan out for a 2 week period to faculty or staff only.

Laptop Power Adapters: These are kept with the Laptops in the 208 Cabinet and are always checked out with laptops.  We have extras for individual checkout, but always be sure that there are at least the same number of adapters as there are laptops.  Power adapters cannot leave Bihall and they have a 4 hour loan period.

Items that CANNOT leave the Library:

Laptops: There are four Dell laptops and two Ibooks available for check out on a first come, first serve basis.  They have a loan period of 4 hours and must be returned when the library closes.  These are kept in the equipment cabinet in 208.  Please remind patrons that these cannot leave the Library under any circumstance.  When laptops are returned, please check to make sure they have been properly shut down and all the appropriate parts are still intact (pop-up windows will prompt you in what to look for).

PLEASE NOTE:  Equipment borrowed at Armstrong must be returned at Armstrong.  This rule applies for equipment at Main as well.  Equipment must be returned to the branch it was borrowed from.  So we do not check in items such as:

Calculators from the Main Library

Tape recorders

LCD Projector from Main

iPods

Camcorders

Cameras

CD Players

Microphones
