Equipment at the Pratt Institute Libraries

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can borrow equipment?

Pratt faculty, staff, and students who have a library account in good standing.


How many items can be checked out?

Up to six items may be borrowed at a time. Multiples of the same types of items may not be borrowed. The loan period is two days.



What if more equipment is needed, or equipment is needed for longer?

A Special Equipment Request should be submitted at least one week before the requested date. 
Specify the following:

  • Pratt ID number and first and last name of the borrower
  • Name, place, and date of the event
  • Quantity and type of equipment needed
  • Preferred pick-up date
  • Preferred return date


What if I fail to return equipment on time?

Fines for equipment returned late accrue at a rate of $12 per item per day. When $10 in fines is reached, an account is no longer in good standing, and the patron may no longer borrow items from the Library.
