Laptop Check Out

One of the new MacBooks available for student check-out.Students, you can borrow a laptop from Pfau Library! This service is made possible by the Vital Technology Student Fee.

In Spring 2013, funds generated by the fee purchased 40 MacBook Pros capable of booting up as Mac OS X or Windows 7. In Summer 2013, we added 20 more, for a total of 60 at Pfau Library. (PDC students, you have 10 laptops at the Palm Desert Campus library.) UPDATE: In Summer 2014, we added 20 more laptops, for a total of 80 available at Pfau Library!

To check out a laptop, ask at the library’s Check Out Desk on the first floor; you will need your Coyote OneCard (CSUSB student ID card). Check-out period is 4 hours with one renewal. Use My Library Account/Renew Items to renew online (or look for “Renew Items” on the library’s homepage). Laptops can leave the library, but cannot be kept overnight. Be sure to save your files to your own USB drive!

Read our Laptop Lending Program page for complete details, including check-out periods, renewal policies, fines, and installed software.
