How to Book Equipment

Welcome to CIRT's Equipment Booking and Check-out system. From this site, you can book equipment you would like to check-out from the CIRT Lab. You can also check to see what equipment is available, what equipment you have booked, and/or what you have already checked out under your name.


Similar to flights, reservations in the check-out system are referred to as bookings.


When making a booking, a Resource Type is the category of equipment (i.e.: camcorder) while a Resource Name refers to a specific singular piece of equipment or model of equipment (i.e.: GoPro Hero 3).

  2. This will bring you to the portion of our check-out system called the Booking Wizard.


  3. If you would like a more detailed view of what we have available, please choose the 'Booking' tab up at the top once you login.
