Laptops to Loan . . .

Occasionally students might find that they need to do a little mobile computing around campus, but do not have a computer where they want to work. To this end, Library Services now provides laptops to students that need some mobile computing power where and when they need it. Internet services can be easily accessed using the laptops' built-in wireless cards and our wireless network.

Students can borrow and schedule laptops from the Vera Bracken Library for use on campus only. A laptop can be borrowed for 4 hours and renewed for an additional 4 hours if there are no holds on it. See the Audio Visual Desk in the library for additional details.

The laptops' software profiles are as follows:
  • Microsoft Office XP (SP3)
  • Microsoft Office 2007 Professional (Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Word, etc.)
  • Classroom Performance System (CPS)
  • SMART Notebook 10
  • CD/DVD burning application and more
Some quick hardware specifications include:
  • 17" screen (great for collaboration)
  • 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor
  • 250 GB hard drive
  • 3GB RAM
  • Wireless network card & Bluetooth
  • Built-in Web-cam and microphone
  • CD/DVD player
  • SD card reader
  • Firewire (1394a)
  • USB 2.0
