Instructions for RRC Polytech staff and students on accessing the booking system and submitting equipment requests to borrow Library equipment.

Welcome!

HOW TO BOOK LIBRARY EQUIPMENT

If you are a current faculty or student at Red River College Polytechnic, you can use the online equipment booking system to schedule equipment from the RRC Polytech Library, both at the Notre Dame and the Exchange District campuses.

Access the Equipment Booking System

Access the Equipment Booking System

From the Library homepage...

... select Browse and Borrow from the green banner at the top of the page, then Borrow Equipment from the left menu.

OR

Scroll down the page and select the Borrow Equipment Icon from the list of quick-access icons just beneath the Library hours of operation.

Selecting either the Borrow Equipment Icon or the Browse and Borrow>Borrow Equipment options will take you to the RRC Polytech authentication page which will confirm your active status* to use Library resources. 
Use the same login credentials you use to access all RRC Polytech Library resources and bypass the Proxy. See How to logon to RRC Resources.

Once the booking system has been accessed, the view defaults to show all items at the Notre Dame Campus. You can filter the items displayed by adjusting the (1) location drop-down and then selecting a (2) category from the drop-down.

Equipment is not quickly transferrable between campuses.
Whenever possible, please request equipment from the location you intend to pick it up.
