Laptop computers are available from O’Kelly Library for use by WSSU students, faculty, and staff. All laptop computers are for in-house use only. Laptop computers are checked out from the Circulation desk, which is located on the First Floor West.

Patrons must complete a new form each semester in order to check out laptops.
All persons that wish to check out a laptop computer must present and leave a valid WSSU ID card, Banner I.D # and current driver’s license or state identification card at the Circulation desk.
Laptop computers are for library use only (within the building).

Patrons are responsible for the laptop and all of the components and accessories while on loan.
Patrons should not allow anyone else to use the laptop while checked out to them.
Patrons must provide their own disks or flash drives to save their work; all changes will be lost when the computer is turned off.
All laptops must be returned 30 minutes before the service desk closes to allow for the check-in process.
The person that checks out the laptop must return the laptop.
Staff must complete the check-in process before returning the driver’s license and WSSU ID card to the patron.
