On May 1, 2011, the laptop lending program in Mills, Innis, and Thode Libraries will be discontinued. The laptop lending program requires significant expenditures for hardware and, in particular, for staffing to support the program.
In these financial times, we have to make hard decisions about where our funds are best utilized; a survey conducted by MSU indicated overwhelming student support for additional seating over extending the laptop lending program. The savings will be reinvested in developing our student spaces, and will permit us - on the staffing front -to better support technology offered elsewhere.
We appreciate your understanding and patience as we make this transition, and as always welcome your feedback and comments.  Feel free to contact Dale Askey, Associate University Librarian, Library & Learning Technologies or Anne Pottier, Associate University Librarian, Library Services.
