How to Reserve Equipment

Welcome to CIRT's equipment reservation and checkout system. From this site you can reserve equipment you would like to check out from CIRT, check what equipment is available, check what equipment you have reserved, and check what you already have checked out under your name.


Please watch the video tutorial below or read through the following instructions on how to use WebCheckout Patron Portal.



To Begin:

  1. Login to WebCheckout Patron Portal with your UNFID and password.
  2. Authenticate with Duo two-factor authentication.
  3. This will bring you to the portion of our check-out system called Patron Portal.

Making a Reservation

  1. Please select CIRT from the list of available checkout centers.

  2. When you enter the checkout center, you will see a welcome message. Please read this message and then choose the "close" option to access the equipment dashboard.
  3. Double click on the image of the CIRT logo to open our list of equipment categories.
  4. Use the blue arrows on either side of the screen to scroll through the available options and select the equipment you want to reserve. Our equipment is organized by categories and subcategories. For example, if you select "Laptops" you will be shown three types of laptops to choose from. Note: 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).

  5. Once you have selected the piece of equipment you would like to reserve, click the option "Reserve one of this Type." This will add the item to your cart. If you would like to reserve more than one item, continue choosing equipment and adding them to your cart with the "Reserve one of this Type" button.

  7. Once you've chosen the "Create Reservation" option, you will be asked to fill in the reservation details:
    • Date and time you would like to pick up the equipment. Please keep in mind that equipment can only be picked up during our checkout center hours. These hours are listed at the bottom of the details box.
    • Duration of your checkout. The maximum length of a checkout is 14 days. Once you select how many days you would like to keep the equipment for, the return date will show underneath the duration box.
    • Quantity. The maximum quantity for most items is one, however some items allow for multiples to be reserved (such as camcorders and tripods). If you try to reserve more than one when it is not allowed, you will receive an error message and you will not be able to reserve the equipment. To proceed with the reservation, you can reduce the quantity or contact CIRT to request multiples.
    • Attachments and Event/Class Title can be left blank. These options are available for other checkout centers but do not need to be used for CIRT.
    • You can leave a note for the checkout center if you would like. This note is helpful if you need the equipment prepared in any special way. For example, if you would like a laptop to have specific software pre-installed.

  8. Once you are done editing the details of your reservation, click "Submit Reservation" and a confirmation message will show. Once you have received the confirmation message you have successfully reserved the equipment. You will receive an email to your UNF email address with details of your reservation. At this point you may close out of the page.
