Borrow laptops and more at the Mina Rees Library

February 8th, 2015 | Posted by hsindhi in Blog

As many of you may know, the GC IT department used to lend out technology (laptops, camcorders, digital flip recorders, etc.) to GC students from their help desk in the library. This tech was bought by Student Tech Fee money. IT has now discontinued lending this equipment.

The library staff were generous enough to pick up the job and will start circulating both older and more recently acquired equipment. The following equipment will be available to borrow by students and alum only:

– 6 MacBook Pros

– 2 HP netbooks

– 10 TASCAM audio recorders

– 4 Logitech wireless presenters (pointers/clickers for use during presentations)

– 4 Logitech webcams

The library will also start circulating reserve items (items that cannot leave the library) like wrist pads (pads to rest your wrists while typing on a computer) and laptop chargers, but has yet to acquire this equipment.

If you would like to borrow any of the above, please see the library circulation desk. Students will be able to borrow equipment for 1 week, and be able to renew (online) three times, unless the equipment has been recalled. Reserve items will be loaned for 10 hours at a time.

More info can be found here.

Please email library (at) cunydsc (dot) org if you have any questions or concerns about this.
