1990s: The UGL offered calculators and other basic tools for students to use while studying at the library. As mobile phone and game use increased, the Library purchased and circulated basic items such as phone cords, cables, and gameboys.
2000s: As classes began asking students to create projects that incorporated media, the UGL began purchasing video recorders and flip cameras to assist those needs. Throughout the years the UGL increased the types of equipment it loaned out.
2015 onwards: Once the Media Commons launched, there was a steady rise in the need for higher end equipment. See below for statistics.
