Equipment is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Faculty, staff, and students may reserve equipment using the form below. Advance notice is advised to ensure equipment availability.
Equipment Request Form
Reservations must be made at least one day in advance. Maximum loan period is seven days but will vary depending on availability of equipment. Equipment is not renewable. Back-to-back reservations will be canceled. There is a two item limit per loan period. You must use a Buffalo State e-mail address when filling out the request form.
Only patrons who present a valid Bengal ID card are eligible to borrow equipment. In addition, patrons must have a library account in good standing with the Equipment Loan department (under $5.00 in fines), and sign the Loan Agreement every time equipment is checked out.
The patron who checks out the equipment is solely responsible for its safe return in good condition and will be held financially liable for theft, loss, or damage. Equipment must be checked in by a library staff member. Library staff will verify that the equipment was returned in good condition and that no accessories are missing.
Overdue Fines/ Replacement Costs
Overdue fines: $5.00 per day
Unpaid fines can result in suspension of borrowing privileges, cancellation of registration, blocked transcripts, and delayed graduation.
Patrons who return equipment late - two times during a semester - will have their borrowing privileges revoked until the next semester. If equipment is seven days overdue, we will make three attempts to contact you by phone and e-mail. If we do not hear from you after these attempts, the full replacement costs of the equipment will be assessed to your library account.
