Inventory Management

Textiles Creative and Technology Services (TCTS) has a number of devices available for use to students, staff, and faculty both on and off-campus. All requests must contain a detailed justification for the use of the device. Device assignments are re-evaluated annually and all assets must be physically audited by TCTS each year, regardless of if the device is an at-home or on-campus device.

You can login and view your assigned assets on inventory.textiles.ncsu.edu.

Once your request has been approved, your device will be assigned to you and an acknowledgement email generated. You must agree and accept the device via the generated email before you can pick up the device for use. It is expected that the device will be returned in the same functioning order, with the same accessories present when the device was delivered to you.

Short term loaner devices are loaned out for anywhere from a few hours to 30 days.

All devices must be audited physically by a member of TCTS annually, regardless of if the device is off or on campus.
