Self-service laptop kiosks will be available soon in the Rivera and Orbach Libraries, starting on Monday, April 15, 2019.
In the recent library student survey, one student commented, "I would really benefit from the establishing a more reasonable way to check out laptops." Another said, "I think it would be useful to students if they had more laptops and computers to use."
This solution may be exactly what students like these are looking for.
In the future, ITS may expand the service to additional locations on campus, depending on user demand.
At this time, the Laptops Anytime program is not available to UCR faculty, staff, or community users -- only to currently registered UCR students. However, UCR staff and faculty can still check out laptops by visiting the Circulation / Reserves Desk in either library.
Here is a brief tutorial video to walk you through the user experience:
