  • Present a current Valdosta State University ID
  • have an academic need for the equipment

Please Read: Late Fee and Return Policy

Late fees totaling in over $10 must be paid within 30 days in order to avoid a banner hold being placed.

Reservations:

For high demand items such as mini digital video recorders, camcorders, LCD projectors, and PA systems, patrons should reserve their materials in advance in order to guarantee availability. There is no limit as to how far in advance a customer may request materials, but each item has particular restrictions on how long it may be issued to a patron. Laptops may not be reserved ahead of time unless by a faculty or staff member.
