Equipment Checkout

How to Check Out Equipment:

Check items out at the DMC Desk on the first floor.

Patrons must present a valid USF ID to checkout equipment and equipment must be returned within 72 hours. Some guidelines:

  • Equipment is checked-out on a first-come-first-served basis.
  • The equipment loan period is 3 days, and is due back 15 minutes before the DMC closes on that day.
  • Patrons may only check out ONE type of device at a time (one Canon T5i, one Zoom Audio Recorder, etc).
  • No renewals are allowed; there is a 24 hr. waiting period for an additional request for the same item type.
  • All equipment and its components must be present at return.
  • Students, faculty, and staff are responsible for the equipment they check out. All equipment is inspected by library staff prior to check-out to ensure that it is in good operational condition.
  • The library will determine the replacement, repair, and processing charges should the equipment be lost, stolen or damaged, to be applied to the student’s account.
  • Overdue items will be considered lost; replacement and processing charges may be applied to the student’s account. This may result in denial of library borrowing privileges, including future checkouts of DMC equipment.
