Equipment Lending Policies

The Daniel Library offers equipment you can check out, available at the Information Desk located on the first floor. The desk is open during normal operating hours. Equipment must be reserved through the Library's on-line reservation system and checked out and returned to the Information Desk. 

The following equipment is available to current Citadel students, faculty, and staff:

  • Laptops
  • GoPros (and mounts)
  • Camcorders
  • Digital Recorders
  • Google Cardboard Glasses
  • TI-Nspire CX Calculators
  • Headphones
  • Tripods

Equipment lending is subject to the Library’s general Circulation Policies; you must review these policies, in addition to those found here, prior to checking out equipment. Any personal data left on the equipment (files, documents, images, etc.) will be erased after its return. The Library is not responsible for the loss of personal data.
