Equipment in the LRC

Borrowing a Headset, Reserve Materials or Other Equipment / Resources:

When borrowing a headset, a book, a DVD, a CD or any other piece of equipment or resource, these resources must stay in the LRC. Students are asked to leave in exchange something they will not forget to retrieve such as ID, car keys, phone, USB drive, textbook, etc. (Please no check cards, cash, gift cards or other monetary item.) This process allows us to verify that equipment has been returned so that it can be kept secure.
