Request Equipment

Current Carthage faculty and staff are allowed to check out computing/camera equipment from the Hedberg Library Circulation Desk. Equipment is available on a “first-come, first-served” basis.

  • All equipment has a 3 day checkout period. No extensions will be given unless the user has made arrangements with library staff. Please email help@carthage.edu with questions.
  • Circulating equipment may not be renewed. After returning a borrowed item, a user must wait one hour before checking out the same type of item to allow other students a chance to utilize the equipment.
  • Faculty/staff checking out equipment from the Circulation Desk are subject to a replacement cost fee if the equipment is not returned by the due date. LIS may charge the faculty/staff member’s department for the replacement cost of the item.

REQUESTS FOR LONG-TERM EQUIPMENT BORROWING FOR FACULTY/STAFF

Faculty and staff sometimes need a piece of computing equipment for more than 3 days. In these cases, employees may request an item from Media Services. Please send an email to help@carthage.edu detailing your status at the college (faculty/staff, full-time/part-time), the equipment requested, and the dates needed. Media Services will contact you via Request Tracker. Equipment checked out from the Circulation Desk (with no communication with Media Services) must be returned by the due date and cannot be kept for a semester.

PURCHASING REQUESTS FOR FULL-TIME FACULTY/STAFF

Current full-time faculty and staff may request computing equipment be purchased for them for permanent use while employed at Carthage. In some cases (part-time employees, lost items) the employee’s department may be charged for the item.

Full-time faculty/staff may request purchase of items via the online form below or email help@carthage.edu

OVERDUE EQUIPMENT AND FINES

  • For items that have a replacement cost of $200 and under, the fine is $5 per day, with a maximum overdue fine of $25.
  • A replacement cost will be charged to Student Accounts when an item has been 10 days overdue. The replacement cost is located in the catalog record of the item and on the checkout sheets users sign. If the item is returned within 60 days of the due date (patrons are emailed three separate overdue notices), the replacement cost fine will be forgiven once the item is returned to Hedberg Library in good working condition. The replacement cost will not be forgiven if the item is returned over 60 days past the due date and the item will be considered “Lost.”
