How do I borrow using the checkout system?
For new Lending Library users:
New users may sign up for an account with the online checkout system at any time. Choose the "Create Account" option at the top right of the checkout system homepage. Users will be enrolled in a "No Contract on File" membership type. Once a contract has been receive and verified, a DCIU staff member will change the membership to a "Contract on File" membership type. This will allow users to make reservations and check out items until the contract expires at the end of each school year.
For existing Lending Library users:
All contracts expire on June 30 of each school year and new contracts are made available the following August. At the end of a contract period, all existing users will be switched to a "No Contract on File" membership type. This will allow users with existing accounts to browse inventory and available resources during the summer inventory period, but does not allow for checkouts. Once new contracts have been submitted, users will be switched to a "Contract on File" membership type, which will allow users to make reservations and check-out items until June 30.
