Audio/Visual Equipment is available to Dominican faculty and staff for check-out from the Library Circulation Desk by submitting an AV Request.
To put course material on reserve please submit a filled out copy of this form with all intended reserves at the circulation desk. Reserves can be set for a 2 hour library use only loan period, 24 hours, 72 hours, or 1 week. Reserves take a minimum of 3 days to be processed for student use.
At the end of every semester, professors are required to pick up their course reserves at the circulation desk, regardless of whether they plan to re-submit the same or new materials the following semester. Extenuating situations excepted, in which reserves can be put aside until a later date on a case by case basis. All materials remaining will be disposed of after the 30 day grace period.
MacBook Pro Laptop Computers
The Library has 24 MacBook Pro laptop computers available for Dominican students, faculty and staff to borrow. The loan periods are 4 hours and available on a first come, first served basis.
Because we want the lab to be available to as many people as possible, more than six laptops cannot be reserved more than four times per semester by a single individual. If a computer lab is necessary for every class for an entire semester please use a computer lab as your classroom.
In addition to borrowing individual laptops, faculty and staff can borrow a cart with up to 24 laptops to set up a mobile computer lab anywhere on campus.
The cart can be picked up and dropped off at the circulation desk and can be borrowed for 4 hours.
Please use the below form to reserve the cart, at least 48 hours before you need it.
For questions, please contact Ethan Annis.
