The library should inform students new on-campus that there are laptops that can be checked out for recreational use instead of computers that have research priority.
I’m unclear about your comment. Ellis Library does have laptops available for check-out. The only restrictions for their use are that they can only be checked-out for 2 hours and users must follow library and campus computing policies.
