Loaner Equipment Policies

All chargers, adapters, iPads, and laptops borrowed from the Information & Borrowing desk are eligible for two renewals provided we have more like items available for other users behind the Information & Borrowing Desk. Borrowers must come to the Information & Borrowing desk with the equipment that they have checked out in order to request a renewal. If the renewal request cannot be granted, borrowers must return their equipment and wait one hour before checking it out again.  

Users may only have one large device checked out at a time (this pertains to iPads, MacBook Airs, Library Chromebooks, and Help Desk Chromebooks). Users can check out additional chargers and adapters with large devices.

All equipment must be returned to an employee at the Information & Borrowing Desk in Goldfarb Library. All chargers must be returned in their equipment bags. If chargers are returned without their bags, users will be fined a $5 replacement fee. 

Users must sign an Equipment Borrowing Agreement at the start of each academic year before they may borrow an iPad, Library Chromebook, MacBook Air, or Help Desk Chromebook.
