In-class use of Laptops

As the school moves toward BYOD, please encourage your students to bring their own laptop when needed in class. The Business Library has collaborated to assist in scheduling and checking-out WSB imaged laptops. Beginning with the Fall 2019 semester please use the following methods.

Instructor Scheduling
Prior to the date(s) needed, we would ask you to work with the library to schedule or reserve a small number of laptops to ensure sufficient quantities are charged and ready for your students to pick up. The library form to reserve in-class used laptops is at

Student Checkout
Individual laptops from the cart will be available for your students to pick up for in-class use from the first-floor library service desk. (The library service desk next to the Huber lab and just outside the FAL.)

Note: these laptops are for in-classroom and exam use only. Students should use the Huber Lab or their own computers for out-of-class work.
