University Library

Equipment Check Out

For Faculty and Instructors

  • Reserve equipment and media at (320) 308-3083, up to one month in advance

The Library Circulation desk maintains a small pool of multimedia equipment for use by current St. Cloud State faculty, staff and students.

Equipment is not intended for long-term or permanent needs. This equipment checkout program serves the following purposes:

  • Supplies resources to those who can’t afford them
  • Provides short-term solutions for equipment needs
  • Gives multiple users access to resources that they need only sporadically
  • Allows students, faculty and staff to explore using a particular tool they may purchase later

Most items have a three-day general checkout. Faculty and staff may check out equipment for a maximum of two weeks. All renewals and checkouts are subject to availability.

On the fifth day overdue, patrons receive a bill for the replacement cost of the item. The Library reserves the right to refuse checkout for any reason including, but not limited to, late returns, outstanding fines, damaged equipment and missing accessories.
