NEW! Laptop lending program, in Kilmer Library

If you've got work to do, you want to use a laptop, and you are on the Livingston campus, the Kilmer Library is the place to go.

The Rutgers University Libraries are pleased to offer a new laptop lending project in the Kilmer Library, on the Livingston Campus in Piscataway. Starting Tuesday November 1st any Rutgers student, faculty, or staff can borrow a 2011 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 Kilmer Library via the RU Wireless service and users sign in by using their NetID. Documents prepared on the Netbooks can be printed for free in any OIT computing lab.

Laptops can be borrowed on a first come, first served basis and reservations are not offered. There are five Netbooks available through this program. Users must present a valid Rutgers ID to borrow a Netbook.

For more information on the laptop lending program, or to borrow a Netbook, please visit the circulation desk in the Kilmer Library.

This program is an expansion of the laptop loan initiative in the Rutgers University Libraries, which was initiated in the Art Library in fall 2010. A similar laptop loan program was also introduced at the Alexander Library, on the College Ave. campus, earlier this semester.
