Overview

The E.J. Pratt Library has a variety of devices that we lend out to students and staff.  You can borrow them from the Circulation Desk on the main floor of the Library.

Windows Laptops

Library laptops are available for a six hour loan period at the Circulation Desk. A valid TCard is required.

Appropriate use of laptops:
The laptops are for in library use only. They must not be taken out of the building for any reason. Please return your laptop promptly when the borrowing period is up. The overdue fine is $0.50 per hour.

The laptops are configured for both wireless and wired Internet access and are also equipped with office software and wireless printing.

If you require technical support, please ask for help at the IT Support Desk.

Multimedia Laptop

A laptop with design software was donated by the Victoria University Students Administrative Council and is available to be borrowed (for in library use) from the Circulation Desk.

The laptop is equipped with Adobe Creative Suite 6 and includes Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Premier Pro, and InDesign.

Chromebooks

Chromebooks are available for a two day loan from the Circulation Desk. A valid TCard is required.

Appropriate use of Chromebooks:
Chromebooks can be used outside the library, but please return your chromebook promptly when the borrowing period is up. The overdue fine is $0.50 per hour.

The Chromebook is similar to a laptop that only runs the Chrome web browser. It allows you to check email, search the internet, and access all your files from online storage websites. Now that Google, Microsoft, and others have so many editing suites online as well there is almost nothing the Chromebook can't do. It even lets you edit a video!

iPads

Note: The iPads are unavailable as of May 1st, 2018.
There are two iPads available at the New College Library. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Charging Cables

Packages of charging cables for select phones and tablets including Apple and Android devices can be borrowed from the Circulation Desk for a two hour loan.

Each one amp charger kit comes with:
-USB-C plug (new android and other devices)
-Apple "lightning" style 8-pin plugs
-Micro-USB plug (commonest USB plug for Android and other devices)
