Technology Booking Sheet

Use this sheet to book computer labs, chromebook carts or the library mezzanine space for your class. Please note the following:

  • Booking in advance is highly recommended if you have technology preferences

  • Please avoid mass or long-term booking (anything in excess of 1 week in any given block) to ensure equitable access to resources for all

  • Be considerate of others and return any carts to their "home" when you are finished

  • For chromebook carts, it is recommended you count chromebooks before & after each block

  • Remember, students must be supervised in lab spaces at all times!

  • Additional availability in the Library Learning Commons upon request - see Allison Girard
