The Technology Checkout Desk is a service desk that allows patrons to check out digital equipment and accessories for personal use. It is located on the Lower Level of the Belk Library and Information Commons, next to the main stairwell and adjacent to the Digital Media Studio. Refer to the floor plan for a detailed map of the Lower Level, as well as the Technology Checkout Desk calendar (click on “Technology Checkout Desk” tab) for our updated hours.
