Equipment Circulation Policy

The Purdue Libraries and Information Technology at Purdue combined resources in 2002 to provide audio/visual equipment for loan. Our mission is to support and facilitate integrated learning of information and technology literacy for Purdue University students. To accomplish these goals, we provide several services, including a state-of-the-art computer lab and various types of audio/visual equipment that patrons can borrow at the iDesk on the main floor of the Hicks Undergraduate Library.

All Purdue University-West Lafayette Campus faculty, staff, and students are allowed to borrow the equipment. Patrons must have a valid Purdue ID at the time of checkout and may only borrow one unit of each equipment type at a time.

If you have any questions or would like to make a reservation, please call 765-494-3751 or ask us in person at the Hicks ITaP iDesk.

Equipment hours are:

Checkout Times* How Long Can I Borrow?
Monday-Thursday 7am - 11:30pm 3 days
Friday 7am - 5:30pm
Saturday 1pm - 5:30pm
Sunday 1pm - 11:30pm

*Please note that these hours are subject to change for several reasons, including summer and holiday hours.
