COVID-19 Restrictions to Technology Use and Borrowing

Current EKU faculty, staff and student visitors to the John Grant Crabbe Main Library are required to practice 6 feet social distancing guidelines, and to wipe down their used surfaces when leaving. This includes wiping down keyboards, mice, and the work areas surrounding any used desktop computers.

Due to the risks of sharing physical items without a quarantine period for them, the library has made the difficult decision to suspend the circulation of certain physical items that have been available in past semesters.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may pose, but the following items will not be available for the Fall 2020 semester:

  • Anatomy Models
  • Cables/Cords: HDMI, VGA, Dongle, etc.
  • Calculators: TI-83, TI-84, and standard
  • Craft Bags: bags include an assortment of colored pencils, crayons, markers, and glue sticks
  • Computer Mice
  • Expo Markers and Whiteboard Erasers
  • Hammocks
  • Headphones (with and without attached microphones)
  • iPads
  • MacBook Chargers
  • Nexus 10 Tablets
  • PowerPoint Clicker
  • Scissors
  • Thumb Drives 


The Eastern Kentucky University libraries provide technologies and opportunities to increase technological skills to enhance research, teaching and learning. Each library on campus has personal computers for convenience and access to our digital resources. The library also has a selection of computer equipment (laptops, scanners, printers, etc.) and audiovisual materials (CD and DVD players, microform readers, etc.) for use and loan. In addition, computers and tablets may be checked-out.
