How to use the CHM Library

Did you know? The CHM has a “lending library” full of useful computer-y things: laptops, dongles, cables, and more! You can check out these items by visiting our online library system and requesting them. Once you’ve requested an item, head to a librarian (Brendon, Sarah, or the front desk person) to check out the item!

This is a shared resource, and items are not intended for long-term (i.e. semester) checkout. In general, all items have a 3-day checkout time frame. Exceptions may be provided if you will need an item for longer than a week, please email help@chm.wisc.ed and explain your situation. We’ll try our best to work with you to meet your needs.

Checking out items:

  • Head to and log in with your NetID and password.

  • On the left-hand side of the screen, you’ll see a “computer” icon called “Requestable”. Click on that to see requestable items:

  • Use the “Search” feature, or just browse through the pages of items to find what you’re looking for. When you find the item you’d like, click on the “Request” button. Be patient, as it may take a moment or two in order to process the request.

  • You’ll receive an email saying you’ve requested an item. Find a librarian (front desk or RSC member) to check out the item for you!
