Our Technology Checkout Station provides laptop computers, webcams and other technology to aid students working remotely. Students may check out needed equipment with their Panther Card for a limited time period. Have a question about a particular piece of software or hardware? Our staff can help!

Please note: as of Spring 2023, the Technology Checkout Station no longer has hotspots (MiFis) for checkout. Unfortunately, the funding this program is no longer available.

The following items are available for checkout. Their loan periods are listed. All patrons must sign an agreement certifying they take responsibility for the item(s) and their safe and timely return.

Patrons are charged a monetary fee for overdue items and a replacement cost for lost, stolen, or damaged library materials. Your official academic records will be withheld until all fines have been resolved through Booth Library's Circulation Services.

Because the technology checkout program is intended to support student success, faculty are not able to check out equipment at the desk. We are sometimes able to support technology checkout to faculty by special request. If you are a faculty member needing to checkout equipment for an EIU program, please email us at

Funding for the technology checkout program at the CSI was provided through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief fund.
