Technology Checkout

Jackson Library and the Harold Schiffman Music Library loan technologies to UNCG students, faculty, and staff. The Digital Media Commons has a variety of loanable technologies for use only in the lower level of Jackson Library.

  • Borrowers must read and sign a Technology Lending Agreement before borrowing Libraries technology.
  • One in person renewal per item is possible as long as there is another like item available for another borrower.
  • Due to high demand and limited quantities, patrons are limited to borrowing either one laptop or iPad at a time, only one of each remaining items at a time, and only one Go Pro accessory at a time.
  • For loan period and fine rate information in Jackson Library, see our Technology Lending Loan Period, Fines and Fees page.
