Loaner Equipment Policies

Renewals

Loaner equipment borrowed from the Information & Borrowing desk is eligible for two renewals (equal to three times the borrowing period) provided we have the same item available. Borrowers must come to the desk with the item to request a renewal. If the renewal request cannot be granted, borrowers must return it and wait one hour before checking one out again.

Borrowing Limits

Patrons can only have one large item (iPad, MacBook Air, or Chromebook) checked out at a time. We cannot offer extended loan periods or multiple devices loaned per person for special events at this time.

Notes on Usage

All equipment must be returned to an employee at the Information & Borrowing Desk during desk open hours. Patrons must sign an Equipment Borrowing Agreement before borrowing an iPad, MacBook Air, or Chromebook.

Bags

Items marked with an asterisk (*) in the table above are loaned with a bag, if patrons return these items without a bag they will be fined a $5 replacement fee.
