Notes

  • Do not save your files on library computers. Files saved on library computers get erased after you log off or when your time limit expires.
  • Save your files to a USB drive or save files temporarily to the desktop and email them to yourself.
  • Once you log off the computer (or your time limit is reached) you lose your information -- be sure to save your work often.
  • If you forgot your USB drive, you can save it to your OneDrive or check out a USB at the Service Desk

Oomf portable chargers

The Library and ITS are piloting Oomf Omnicharge: a self-service vending machine that allows library users to borrow a portable power supply for up to 24 hours. 18 Oomf chargers are available for checkout at the Library North Level 1 Service Desk. To check out a charger follow these steps:

  1. Download the Oomf app to your phone or tablet (iOS or Android)
  2. Open the app and create an account or login via Google or Facebook
  3. Enter your credit/debit card information. The first 24 hours of usage is free, you can keep the charger for longer at a rate of $20/day, up to a maximum charge of $300
  4. Unplug and remove a charger from the charging station
  5. Sign into the app and select Charge your laptop or phone with omnicharge
  6. Place your device on top of the charger and tap Identify
  7. The display on the charger will flash, once it does tap Activate

That's it, you're ready to go! To return the charger bring it back and plug it in at any empty slot. Make sure the power cord is fully plugged in, it won't be removed from your account until it is charging again.

Notes

  • The loan period is 24 hours, regardless of library hours. If you are unable to return the device because the library is closed you will be charged
  • Each charger has one AC and two USB outlets, see the Oomf website for more details
  • The charger does not come equipped with the necessary cables to charge your device
  • Any billing questions should be sent directly to Oomf

This is a pilot service, we would appreciate your feedback!
