NEW! Laptop lending program, at the Art Library

Perhaps you're looking to get work done, surf the Internet, start some research, or begin writing that novel you've had in mind. Yet you don't have a laptop with you on campus and you find the desktop computers in the library and computing labs a bit too ... stationary.

Now there's an appealing alternative.

The Rutgers University Libraries are pleased to offer a new laptop lending pilot project in the Art Library. Starting Monday August 23rd any Rutgers student, faculty, or staff can borrow a 2010 Netbook, for use within the library for up to four hours. Each Netbook comes equipped with Internet Explorer, MicroSoft Word, Adobe Acrobat, and other commonly used programs.

Internet access is available in the Art Library via the RU Wireless service and users sign in by using their NetID. Documents prepared on the Netbooks can be printed in any OIT computing lab or for a small fee in the print release station at the Art Library.

Laptops can be borrowed on a first come, first served basis and reservations are not offered. There are five Netbooks in the pilot project. Users must present a valid Rutgers ID to borrow a Netbook.

For more information on the laptop lending pilot program, or to borrow a Netbook, please visit the circulation desk at the Art Library. The Art Library is located in the Voorhees Mall area of the College Ave. Campus, between the Voorhees Hall and Miledoler Hall buildings.
