How to Borrow

  • Chromebooks and Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Laptops can be borrowed from the library's automated laptop lending lockers.
  • Loans are for 21 days, but the loan can be extended two times. Let us know if you have extenuating circumstances and need more time.
  • The Microsoft Surface laptops will automatically connect to the campus WiFi. We can help you setup the Chromebook and get it connected to the eduroam network.
  • If you have any tech issues, please reach out to the Library Technology team. We will attempt to resolve your issue before referring to the SCSU IT Helpdesk.

What to do when you are finished

  • Return the laptop back to the Buley Library laptop lockers anytime the library is open.
  • Follow the screen prompts to return the laptop. You must plug the laptop into the charger attached to the locker and shut the door to remove it from your library account.
