How long can I keep the technology?

Most items are available for 28 day checkout.

Where do I return the technology?

Please return it to the Checkout Desk during Library hours. There is a $15 fee if the technology is returned to the drop box.

What happens if I bring the technology back late?

For laptops, iPads and Kindles, these is a $10 per day charge up to the cost of the item. For other technology, there is a $1 per hour charge up to the cost of the item, if you bring it back late.

What happens if I lose the technology?

Each type of technology has different fees for loss or damage. You will be unable to check-out materials, receive grades, transcripts or register for classes until the fees are paid.
