  • Only one laptop may be checked out per library user.
  • All equipment must be returned in-person to the Circulation Desk with equipment in hand and in the same condition as when it was checked out.
  • All equipment must undergo maintenance upon return and cannot be immediately re-circulated. Equipment is not eligible for renewal.
  • Files and data cannot be saved to the laptop. Laptop memory will be cleared when powered off; data saved to other equipment will be deleted when returned.
  • Battery power for the equipment may not last the entire checkout period; the Library recommends checking battery power and frequently saving personal files to a flash drive, network folder, or email account to prevent loss of work.

  • The Library is not responsible for any loss or damage to the user’s files or peripheral devices due to equipment or network malfunction.
  • Failure to return overdue items and/or pay fines will result in revocation of borrowing privileges.
  • If equipment is returned late 3 times, borrowing privileges will be revoked for the rest of the semester.
