General Info

You can borrow laptops at the Check-Out & Reserves Desk, for use in the library. Here's what you should know before you borrow one:

  • Borrowing a laptop is free as long as you return the laptop on time.
    • You can use the laptop in the library for 3 hours.
    • Late fees are 10 cents per minute, which adds up to $1.00 for every 10 minutes a laptop is overdue.
    • There is no grace period for a late laptop. To avoid having to pay fees, pay attention to when you checked it out.
  • Laptops are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
    • If no laptops are available and you'd like to be next in line for one, we'll give you a pager.
    • Laptops may only be renewed if no one is waiting for one.


  • Anything saved to the laptop will be erased when you logoff.

Damage & Loss

  • If there's a problem with the laptop, please bring it to the Check-Out & Reserves Desk; we'll see what we can do to help you.
  • You are responsible for any damage done to the computer while it is in your possession.
  • As stated in the student handbook, theft or mutilation/damage of library materials is a criminal offense.
