Equipment Depot (the EQ)

The EQ is a service that allows students, staff, and faculty to borrow laptops, media production equipment (and more). The following are just some of the items available for checkout:

  • Mac and PC Laptops
  • Canon DSLR Cameras (T6i)
  • Tripods and other support mounts
  • Microphones
  • LED light kits (temperature and dimming controls)
  • Wacom tablets
  • Final Cut X Editing keyboards
  • Headphones
  • Electronics tool kits
  • Soldering kits
  • Sewing machine

To reserve any of the equipment housed in the EQ, use the Equipment Loans link found in myPlymouth in the left navigation Column, under the Campus category.


How will I now make a reservation for equipment loans and event support?

Click on the “Equipment Loans" link in myPlymouth, on the left-side menu of the Welcome page. This goes to the WebCheckout patron portal.


Can I just walk up to the Information Desk in Lamson Library and ask for equipment?

Yes, but what you want to borrow may already be loaned out or be reserved for somebody else. Equipment is available on a first-come basis.


Who is allowed to checkout equipment?

Active students, faculty, and staff.


If the equipment gets lost or damaged while it is checked out to me, what happens?

You are financially responsible for the equipment you borrow. You will have to pay for the repair or replacement of the lost or damaged item.


What kinds of equipment are available?

Laptops, Digital still cameras, camcorders, tripods, video projectors, lighting kits, computers repair tools, and much more.


How long can I have the equipment for?

The default loan period is for three days. If no one has reserved the equipment after your loan period is up, you may
renew the loan once for three more days.


If I need to have equipment for a longer loan period, can you make an exception for me?

Maybe, if no one has reserved the equipment after your loan period is up, you may renew the loan once for three more days.
The purpose of the Equipment Depot is to make a limited number of technology items available to the greatest number of PSU members.
It is not the purpose of the Equipment Depot to take the place of you purchasing, say, a laptop or a camera that you need to do
your work on for months at a time.


Can I borrow more than one of the same item? Can I, say, borrow ten laptops at one time?

The purpose of the Equipment Depot is to make a limited number of technology items available to the greatest number of PSU members.We can make exceptions for verifiable academic purposes, but we have to impose time limits and item type limits. For example, some items, such as DSLR cameras, have a loan rule of one per person for up to 72 hours per week.


 

When is the Equipment Depot open?

It is open whenever Lamson Library is open. For the current open hours of Lamson library, go to http://library.plymouth.edu/hours.
