Checkout Equipment Policy
It is Multimedia Services' policy to provide multimedia equipment for checkout to the faculty, staff, alumni, and actively enrolled students of The Citadel.
- Reservations should be made at least one week in advance.
- Reservations have priority over walk-ins.
- Laptops (and projectors) may be borrowed for the following purposes:
- When faculty and staff are traveling away from campus on Citadel business and a computer is needed. Examples: conferences, presentations, and computer-based competitions
- When faculty, staff, and students need to make a presentation on campus, and a multimedia-equipped classroom is not available.
- Laptops are not available for personal use in the barracks, the office, at home, or away games.
- Cadets may not check out laptops/projectors overnight.
- If cadets need equipment past normal operating hours for Multimedia Services, they will need to have a faculty or staff member make the reservation for the equipment.
- The faculty or staff member is responsible for the use and security of the equipment.
- No more than three sets of laptops and projectors may be checked out by a patron at one time, even if they are part of an event, such as a conference.
- The equipment must be returned by the agreed upon time and due date, unless other arrangements have been made and noted on the checkout form.
- If a user is not able to return the equipment on time, or if there is a problem with the equipment, they must contact Multimedia Services at (843) 953-5274 as soon as possible.
- The maximum amount of time for an equipment reservation is one (1) week. Requests for longer reservations require the approval of the Multimedia Services Manager.
