University Libraries Laptops During COVID-19

The University Libraries Laptop circulation program is not funded by tuition or technology fees and is not a guaranteed part of the resources and services paid for by students when they enroll in the University. Circulation of laptops has been suspended during this time. The Libraries’ laptops are currently being used by library employees to ensure that we are able to provide access and support to our campus community while campus is closed. 

The University of Alabama is aware of the challenges that students are facing as they try to complete their coursework online. The Office of Information Technology and the Center for Instructional Technology are both working to help students who are struggling to meet the technology requirements involved in online learning, and the most direct way to get help is to contact them. Contact the IT Service Desk for more information about how to get help!
