Borrowing Equipment

As a current student, you must fill out and sign a Library Equipment Loan Agreement form and return it to any Library Help Desk before borrowing library equipment.

Your Library account will be charged for the replacement or repair cost of any lost or damaged equipment. Outstanding fines or fees may result in a hold on your Library account. Account holds impact your ability to register in courses, request transcripts, and apply for graduation.

If borrowing a laptop from the self-serve laptop kiosk, you agree to the Terms of Service Self-Serve Laptop Loan.
