About the Program

The Broome Library and Information Technology Services have partnered to reallocate laptops across campus in order to make additional laptops available for extended student checkout. 

Due to the California Governors Order of Shelter in Place, the Broome Library's laptop distribution schedule has changed.
Please note:

  • We will be practicing social distancing, so please pay close attention to our directional signage.
  • Please have your student ID number.
  • Bring your own laptop bag.
  • See distribution schedule below

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to us via reference.librarian@csuci.edu. Please continue to check our Remote Services website for the most up to date information regarding library services.

How it works

Getting a Laptop

Laptops will be available with your student ID on a first come, first-serve basis at the Broome Library circulation desk.

Waiting List

When all laptops have been checked out, you can place your name on a waiting list here.
(Note: The request link, on the waitinig list page, will only appear when all available items have been checked out)

You will be contacted if/when one becomes available. When we have identified that there are no additional laptops coming, we will notify everyone remaining on the waitlist.

Due Dates

Due dates for all library items will be updated to align with online courses and campus closures.   You will receive notices as we update your due dates.


Even with the additional laptops, availability is still very limited.   Please be mindful that many students do not have access to a computer at home, so many will be relying on this service as the only way to acquire a computer for their coursework. 

Bring Your Own Bag

Please note, as these are emergency loaners we do not have bags available for these laptops, so please plan accordingly when picking up by either bringing a backpack to carry it in or being prepared to carry the laptop and cord in your arms.
