LTS Technology Checkout

On the fourth floor of Booth Library

Operation follows open library hours

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.

  • Dell 3510 i3 256/16 and Surface Book 3 laptops - 2 weeks (1 renewal for a total of four weeks)
  • Webcams - 3 days
  • Microphones - 3 days
  • GoPro Fusion 360 cameras - 3 days
  • Canon (mirrorless) digital cameras - 3 days
  • Mini-tripods - 3 days
  • Sewing machine - 3 days

Patrons are charged 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. However, if a faculty member makes a request, we will consider checking out the item to their account. 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.
