Planning to present from your own laptop for the first time during an upcoming class or meeting? Bringing an outside presenter on campus who needs to use his/her own laptop?

It’s highly recommended that you identify the laptop’s video output well in advance of the class or meeting. Knowing the type of video output available on the laptop helps to determine if you need an adapter in order to connect it for display, which in turn makes the presentation setup go more smoothly by eliminating any last minute rush to track down the necessary adapter.

Adapters are available for sign-out from both the Bouwhuis Library and the Media Center. Additionally, the Office of Event Services can provide adapters for an event if the proper adapter is specified in advance.
