UPDATES: Library Response to coronavirus

This page will be regularly updated with information on special library services and library changes due to campus health concerns related to the coronavirus (COVID-19)

Laptop requests

Laptops are available for short-term checkout. See our borrowing guide for more information. 


We have hotspots available for student use, for semester-long checkout. To make sure there is a hotspot available for you, you may submit a hold in our catalog. Scroll down to the "Place Hold" button, click on it, and fill out the form.

  • There is a recall on the Verizon hotspots from last semester. If you already have a library hotspot from spring semester, bring it in to the Cedar Rapids or Iowa City Campus Library to check out a replacement. You will need to fill out another hotspot checkout agreement.

Please fill out this agreement before checking out a hotspot:
