    Calculator Lending at DMS

    Many college courses require you to use a graphing calculator, but they are expensive, and it’s easy to leave at home by accident on the day of a test or a study group -- or run out of batteries just as you finish entering a long equation. Randall Library’s Digital Makerspace has your back!

    The DMS is now lending TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus calculators for 24 hours at a time. Borrow one to take your exams and quizzes, or use them in the library to finish your homework. You can borrow, and return, these calculators at the DMS during its open hours all semester. Find more info and access the most up to date DMS hours here:

    We also have a small number of TI-84 Plus calculators with Python programming capability in addition to their regular features. Interested faculty can contact Sciences Librarian Sam Zelick for more information at zelicks [at]
