Can Alumni Borrow Laptops?

Published by Dipa Barua
Q: I'm a recent SFU alumnus who's going to be attending a club event at Harbour Centre on Saturday. I've been requested to bring a laptop, and with mine on the fritz was wondering if my alumni status still lets me borrow laptops from the library for on-campus use.

I checked the services pages, and did not find an answer. The alumni services page does not list laptop borrowing under either the permitted or ineligible lists. The external/individual borrowers page states they may not borrow laptops because they are not alumni/students/faculty/staff.

Education Textbooks in Reserves

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: Please consider placing one copy of a textbook- required for SFU classes and/or texts used for curriculum design (K-12 texts) for education classes- on the reserve shelves.  All too often, materials needed for main/mandatory classes are checked out for use by one or two students, at the same time. By having one copy of frequently checked out texts on reserve, on hold, for a few hours or day, it allows more students access to these high-demand materials.
