Borrow a faculty/staff laptop or iPad

Features

LITS has a limited number of Windows laptops and iPads available to lend to faculty and staff. 

  • Faculty members may request a laptop for the purpose of attending a conference, or for use during a sabbatical
  • Staff members may borrow a laptop to carry to a College-sponsored convention or seminar.
  • Loaner laptops may also be requested by community members to do work from home during approved medical leaves or for temporary use as requested by the accessibility office.
  • Administrative offices may request a laptop in order to perform short term tasks requiring a laptop such as an annual inventory process, or facilitating a College sponsored event.

Availability

The laptop lending pool is limited; loans will be made as laptops are available.  Availability is not guaranteed. 

These laptops do not contain internal optical drives. If you will need an optical drive while using the laptop, they are available for checkout by request or on a first-come, first-served basis at the Canaday Circulation Desk.

Please make your request a minimum of 2 business days before you wish to pick up the laptop. A LITS staff member will contact you to confirm your needs and the availability of a laptop.

Policies

  • The loaner pool contains both Windows laptops and iPads; we will do our best to provide the requested device. In some cases we may be able to offer a device, but not one of the requested type.
  • Faculty and staff members who are in possession of a working, College-owned laptop are not eligible to request a loaner laptop.
  • Laptops and iPads cannot be lent for entertainment purposes; this loaner pool is a limited resource and Academic and College Business uses must take precedence.
  • Loaner laptops are for the use of Bryn Mawr College Faculty and Staff only; loans cannot be made for family members, affiliates, or individuals outside the Bryn Mawr community.
  • Laptops requested for conference, seminar, or off-campus presentation use are typically lent for a two week period.  Sabbatical and medical leave loans can be made for the length of the leave, typically up to one semester, but occasionally up to one year as availability and circumstances dictate.
  • If it is possible to fulfill the need by checking out a laptop from the library, LITS staff may suggest obtaining a laptop from the library program.
  • Please make your request a minimum of 2 business days before you wish to pick up the laptop. A LITS staff member will contact you to confirm your needs and the availability of a laptop.
