Checkout Policies & Procedures

  • Laptops and other items are checked out on a first-come, first-serve basis to current college employees for work-related use only. If you are an adjunct faculty, short-term, OYO or OSO employee, you can check out resources only during the time you are under contract.
  • All reservations are limited to a maximum of 3 weeks with a one week extension if item hasn’t already been reserved.
  • Employees may only have up to two reservations in the system at one time for any one resource. However the reservations cannot be concurrent. There must be a one week lapse for updates and repairs.
  • This is a short term resource. If you require a resource for more than 8 weeks during any given semester you will need to apply for a long term.
  • All reservations are to be picked up from Glendale Community College (GCC) IT/Media Services and signed out by the borrower.
