In response to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Hege library building is closed and checkout is unavailable as of 18 March 2020.
Current students, faculty, and staff can borrow a variety of digital media equipment from the Library's Information Desk. A valid Quaker Card is required for all digital media checkouts. No exceptions can be made.
Equipment that is checked out from the library is due back by the specified date – if you don’t return it by that date and time, you will incur fines. If the item is returned damaged you will be charged for repair or replacement. If you don’t return the equipment by 2 days after your equipment is due, you will be charged the replacement cost for that equipment. No exceptions will be made.
Please note that by any use of Library educational media is subject to the College's Network Acceptable Use Policy (NAUP) and the user is responsible for compliance with that policy.
Due to the popularity of our equipment, patrons are limited to 5 checkouts of a digital media item and related accessories per semester. Once an item has been returned, patrons must wait a 24 hour period before checking it out again.
While the Library strives to meet needs on equipment loans, availability is not always guaranteed.
Guilford College’s Hege Library and Learning Technologies was awarded a Library Services and Technology (LSTA) grant to advance The Mobile Edge, an initiative reimagining and expanding digital media services for enhanced mobility. This will support new academic priorities of the Guilford Edge designed to increase student participation in study away and abroad experiences and community engagement. It will be vital for the new academic calendar featuring redesigned experiential curricula, and Guilford’s new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP): Speak UP: Unifying Presentation for an Inclusive, Connected World; both stressing collaborative engaged learning, discovery, and critical creation by all students outside of the classroom. The Library has a number of tablets and other digital media available for check out. Please see our Mobile Edge Guide for more information.
