Technology & Equipment

We offer a broad range of equipment for you to check out from both the circulation and Reeder Media desks.  Anyone with a Swem library card may check out equipment from the circulation desk, but only W&M students, faculty, and staff may borrow equipment from the Reeder Media Center.

By checking out equipment, you agree to

  • assume full responsibility for the equipment while it's checked out to you
  • use the equipment in a safe and responsible manner
  • return the equipment in a timely fashion
  • reimburse W&M Libraries for any damage or loss of equipment or accessories that occurs while it is checked out to you
  • not leave the equipment unattended
  • not allow anyone else to use the equipment


  • Headphones must be turned in before you leave Swem.
  • There are no fines for overdue headphones, but abuse of headphone privileges may lead to loss of library privileges.
