How to Borrow

Borrowing a DSLR and optional accessories can be done by appointment only. As the cameras are a popular item, we suggest placing a reservation at least a week in advance to ensure a better chance of receiving one. To request an appointment, please follow one of the links below.

Friday - Thursday loans: We lend cameras on Fridays 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m from the Ask Us centers at the at D. H. Hill and Hunt Libraries. Cameras are due back the next Thursday 9 a.m. - 8 p.m.

Patrons who miss their Friday reservations will have their reservations cancelled at 5:00 PM, upon which the camera can be offered to the next person on the waitlist.

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