Technology Loan

Please Note: Technology items are not currently available for loan. Please contact the Beryl Ivey Library with any questions or for further information.

We have a number of items available for borrowing by Brescia students, faculty, and staff. All equipment must remain on the Brescia campus. Most equipment, including all chargers, is loaned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Some items, such as laptops, may be reserved in advance. Users are encouraged to reserve these items in advance to ensure availability. To allow all users equal access to equipment, reserving AV equipment for more than a 3 hour period is not encouraged, although exceptions can be made. Please contact library staff to use equipment for longer than three hours.

Book your equipment

Equipment available includes:

  • Laptops (2)
  • Projector
  • Mac adapters
  • Extension cords
  • Bluetooth headphones (4)
  • Headphones (4)
  • Bluetooth speakers
  • PowerPoint remotes
  • Microphones (wired and wireless)

Users who have checked out AV equipment are responsible for returning the equipment intact and in order by the borrowing deadline. Users who fail to meet the deadline disrupt subsequent borrowing times-for this reason, borrowers who return equipment late more than 2 times will lose AV equipment borrowing privileges. A fine of $2.00 per hour, per item, is charged for any overdue materials. It is the responsibility of the borrower to demonstrate to the supervising instructor or a library staff member that all equipment is present and in order. Missing or damaged equipment that is found after check-in will be attributed to the most recent borrower.

Check Out

Users who have reserved AV equipment must check out the AV equipment at the library circulation desk. AV equipment can be checked out for 3 hours. Students must present their valid Western student ID card to check-out AV equipment from the library. Faculty must present a valid Western or Brescia University faculty ID card to check-out AV equipment from the library.

Equipment that is not available due to borrower negligence is not the responsibility of the library.

User Responsibilities

The safety and security of all AV equipment borrowed is the responsibility of the borrower once the equipment has been checked out and/or removed from the library.

Any damage to, or theft of, AV equipment while it is checked out and/or removed from the library, as well as resulting fees, are the responsibility of the borrower. It is the responsibility of the borrower to ensure that all borrowed AV equipment is returned intact and in order and is demonstrated as such to the supervising instructor and/or a library staff member. It is the responsibility of the borrower to inspect the equipment for damage and to report found damage prior to checking out and/or removing the equipment from the library.

User Problems

It is the responsibility of the borrower to book a practice time to learn how to use the AV equipment in advance of the borrowing time. Library staff will not always be available to provide AV assistance but will offer technical guidance when possible.
