The IoT lending library is a DoES resource for use of the DoES maker community

It is located in the DoES workshop and looks like this.

IoT Lending Library

You are free to borrow anything in the drawers to develop, learn or just play, but please return after use so others can have the benefit of this resource.

Checking out and returning items

To check out an item from the lending library please follow this process:

  • decide on the item you wish to check out
  • locate the QR code sticker on the item. it looks like this:

QR Code Example

  • scan the QR code with your phone which will open an issue on the DoES lending library page.

If for any reason you can't find the QR code sticker, go to the iot-lending-library space here and create a new issue manually

  • find the issue on the DoES lending library page here (it will be the newest!).

  • leave your name on the issue and the reason for borrowing (just because it's interesting!)

  • If you have a GitHub user associated with DoeS then set yourself as "Assignee".

  • when you return the item go back to the page and close the issue so we can keep track.

Have fun and let us know what you got up to!

If you have any questions ask Alex Lennon or email
