Please note: technology items are not available for loan while the Beryl Ivey Library is closed.
We have a number of items available for borrowing by Brescia students, faculty, and
staff. All equipment must remain on the Brescia campus. Most equipment, including
all chargers, is loaned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Some items, such as laptops,
may be reserved in advance. Users are encouraged to reserve these items in advance
to ensure availability. To allow all users equal access to equipment, reserving AV
equipment for more than a 3 hour period is not encouraged, although exceptions can
be made. Please contact library staff to use equipment for longer than three hours.

Users who have checked out AV equipment are responsible for returning the equipment
intact and in order by the borrowing deadline. Users who fail to meet the deadline
disrupt subsequent borrowing times-for this reason, borrowers who return equipment
late more than 2 times will lose AV equipment borrowing privileges. A fine of $2.00
per hour, per item, is charged for any overdue materials. It is the responsibility
of the borrower to demonstrate to the supervising instructor or a library staff member
that all equipment is present and in order. Missing or damaged equipment that is found
after check-in will be attributed to the most recent borrower.
Users who have reserved AV equipment must check out the AV equipment at the library
circulation desk. AV equipment can be checked out for 3 hours. Students must present
their valid Western student ID card to check-out AV equipment from the library. Faculty
must present a valid Western or Brescia University faculty ID card to check-out AV
equipment from the library.
Equipment that is not available due to borrower negligence is not the responsibility
of the library.
The safety and security of all AV equipment borrowed is the responsibility of the
borrower once the equipment has been checked out and/or removed from the library.
Any damage to, or theft of, AV equipment while it is checked out and/or removed from
the library, as well as resulting fees, are the responsibility of the borrower. It
is the responsibility of the borrower to ensure that all borrowed AV equipment is
returned intact and in order and is demonstrated as such to the supervising instructor
and/or a library staff member. It is the responsibility of the borrower to inspect
the equipment for damage and to report found damage prior to checking out and/or removing
the equipment from the library.
It is the responsibility of the borrower to book a practice time to learn how to use
the AV equipment in advance of the borrowing time. Library staff will not always be
available to provide AV assistance but will offer technical guidance when possible.
