Digital Scholarship at UCSC Libraries

Equipment for Checkout

The DSC has a selection of hardware available for checkout by UCSC students, staff, and faculty.  Our goal is to provide the necessary equipment and software to facilitate the creation of digital media. We strive to be open and accommodating to the needs of our users. We look forward to helping you create your next digital project!

Hardware can be checked out or reserved up to 2 weeks in advance at the Media Desk in the David Kirk Digital Scholarship Commons.


The Digital Commons provides access to software and hardware, but we cannot provide expert support for all functionality. The user is responsible for all work conducted on these workstations. 

Need Help?

We can provide limited help during our Student Support Hours. Our tutorials provide introductions to some of the software and equipment we use to support classes.

If the checkout policy does not fit your needs, please apply for an extended booking through this form.
