The Library introduces ASUC sponsored Extended Laptop Loan Program for Berkeley students. The program was made possible with a grant from the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Student Services and Fees (CACSSF).
The 24 MacBook Air laptops with chargers and bags are available to UCB students on a first come basis at the Moffitt Library Circulation Desk. The loan period is 14 days with no renewal and no holds. As with the short-term loan program, students must present their Cal1 ID card and agree to the terms to borrow.
Special thanks to Erik Mitchell, Elise Woods, Paul Payne, JJ Mansalay and the LCIS staff, Jenifer Carter, Aisha Hamilton, Steve Moody, and ASUC representatives Melissa Hsu and Divya Suri for their help in making this happen.
