Summary of campus computer inventory
Campus Computer Inventory
Learning and Information Technology maintains the campus’ computer inventory database. Administrative Procedure Number 038 defines the roles and responsibilities of individuals and departments as they pertain to the campus’ computing assets. The computer inventory tool is accessed via the Self-Service feature of the Technology Helpdesk.
Please note that you must be a designated Inventory Admin to access this online tool.
The campus inventory tool will allow the user to:
• Record and change the user assigned to a C-numbered computer
• Record a date the equipment was “verified” for annual inventory purposes
• Record a single note about each piece of equipment for future reference
• Transfer computer assets between departments
• View the campus’ list of computer assets assigned to each department
