How to request a Chromebook from the LLC

1. A list of available Chromebooks can be found here: Chromebooks

2. Select the “Place hold” option on the right-hand side of your screen. You can also visit a campus library and borrow one in person if one is available and you don't want to place a hold and wait.

3. You will then be prompted to log into your HELM library account. Your login is your Bristol student ID number (900#) and your password is the last four digits of the phone number you provided when activating your Bristol Library Card.

4. Next you will select your Pickup location by using the drop-down menu. After selecting one of the Bristol CC locations as a pickup location, confirm the hold by clicking on “Confirm hold."

5. After confirming the hold, you will be able to see the hold along with any other holds you have on your account. This view will also allow you to see the status of your hold.


Guidelines for picking up your Chromebook

  • Students who placed a hold on a Chromebook will be notified via Bristol email or phone when it's ready to be picked up from the LLC.  
  • Students can pick up their Chromebook in-person during open LLC Hours.
  • If students need to pick up their Chromebook after the LLC closes, they can utilize the locker systems - Instructions for Using the LLC Lockers
  • Chromebooks will be loaned for one full semester.
  • By checking out a Chromebook, students agree to the terms stated in the LLC Circulation Policy.

Guidelines for Returning

1. Chromebooks must be returned by the due date to any Bristol campus Library Learning Commons.
