Google Glass is a head-mounted, hands-free wearable computing device. It has a built-in camera, an optical display and the ability to connect to the Internet via voice command. 

How to Borrow

Patrons will need to submit a reservation request with their preferred reservation dates and a brief description of how they plan to use the Glass. Due to limited availability, we prioritize requests that are for teaching, learning, and/or research purposes. Please note that due to high demand, we will not be able to accommodate all requests.

To submit a reservation request, please follow the "Request" link above.

Borrowing Google Glass can be done by appointment only.

Wednesday - Tuesday loans: We lend the Glass on Wednesday 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. from the Ask Us center at the Hunt Library. The Glass is due back the next Tuesday 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Patrons who miss their Wednesday reservations will have their reservations cancelled at 6:30 p.m., upon which the Glass will be offered to the waitlist on a first come, first serve basis.

15-minute appointments:  At check-out, we require a brief 15 minute orientation and review of all the parts being loaned. We require the Glass to be returned with all parts. Patrons are fully liable for the cost of replacement in the event of damage or loss.
