Fill Out Your Equipment Liability Agreement For Fall Semester

Did you know you can fill out your Equipment Liability Agreement online through the library's website?

The Equipment Liability Form is is the form you need to fill out before you can check out laptops and other electronic equipment in the library. If you fill it out now, it will be on file whenever you need it later on in the semester.

To check out a laptop, visit the laptop checkout counter on the library's second floor (you must be a CCU student and have your CINO card).

You can also check to see if any laptops are available online before coming to the library by clicking the "Laptops and Equipment" link on the library homepage.
