By far the most common thing in our lost and found is lost flashdrives. It’s all too easy to be printing something out and then be so concentrated on the paper copy that you forget to grab your flashdrive and in some cases even to log off of the computer. We get roughly half a dozen flashdrives/memory sticks/thumb drives every day. Ninety percent of them are either Kirkwood designed or, more commonly, black.
We urge you to take a minute right now and create a word document called This Belongs To, put in your contact information, and save it to your flashdrive. In order to speed its return if someone finds it. Adding something unique like a wrist band also speeds identification.
If a flashdrive is turned into the library we turn it over to the library lost and found located at the Circulation Desk. Students return to the library asking for these more than any other lost item so we hold them here a week. After that we turn them over to the main campus lost and found located at 230 Iowa Hall, phone number 398-5578 (they answer as student life, just ask for lost and found).
