Pilot Semester-long Technology Lending Program

For the 2023-2024 academic year, the Studios Technology Lending Desk at the University Libraries is partnering with Technology-enhanced Learning and Online Strategies (TLOS) to launch a pilot semester-long technology lending program. We have a subset of technology that we are going to make available to the VT community via this program. Faculty, staff, and students will fill out a request form for equipment, and if we receive more requests than we have equipment available, the decision for who will receive the equipment will be made via weighted random lottery, with research or teaching projects and projects involving a library or TLOS partnership carrying more weight in the lottery. For priority consideration and inclusion in the lottery, requests should be submitted by August 9, others will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Those chosen to receive the equipment will pick it up in the first week of the semester and return it within two weeks of the semester ending. Borrowing equipment through this program is subject to the normal Terms of Service of the Studios Technology Lending Desk.

The application form and link to the list of equipment available are provided here.

Please direct any questions about the program to

If this project is successful and meets a need on campus, we will seek to expand and grow the technology available via this program.
