      The library at the University of Alaska Fairbanks offers a unique equipment lending program through its Circulation Desk. The program features a wide array of equipment types, generous circulation policies, and unrestricted borrowing, enabling students, staff, and faculty to experiment with the latest in audio, video, and computer technologies, for both academic and personal enrichment projects. The program enjoys great popularity and significant financial support by the University. The results of a recently conducted online patron survey demonstrate the need for continued support and further development of the equipment lending program.
