Borrowing Equipment

As a current student, you must fill out and sign a Library Equipment Loan Agreement form at 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, plus a $15 processing fee.

Terms of Use

Liability: As the user, you are responsible for the safety and security of the loaned equipment. You accept any and all responsibility for repair and/or replacement costs resulting from theft, damage, negligence, or misuse. The owning department, which will collect any fees associated with these matters, determines market value and/or damage to equipment. Grade reports, transcripts, and certificates/diplomas may be withheld until outstanding issues are resolved. 

Authorized Users: Loans of library equipment are for currently enrolled students only. Exception: The Emerging Technology collection is available to currently enrolled students, faculty and staff. All users must present a valid myCard or 13-digit Library card, which will be scanned and validated on the Library system. You cannot borrow equipment on another user’s behalf. As the authorized user, you must keep the equipment in your possession at all times. 

Equipment Use: You must only use the equipment for academic purposes and immediately notify the Library if you are experiencing any problems with the equipment. Equipment must not be left unattended at any time during the loan period. 

Deletion of Files: You may not save any work on the library equipment hard drive or memory cards (e.g. SD, micro SD, etc.). All user files and data saved on library equipment will be deleted once it is returned. 

Returns: You are responsible for returning the equipment to the owning campus library in person, on time, and in the same condition it was loaned. 

Laptops and iPads: In addition to the above conditions, laptop/netbook and iPad users will: 

  • Abide by the College’s Acceptable Computer Use Policy (see myCentennial). 
  • Refrain from installing and/or downloading unauthorized software or applications. 
  • Use the laptop/netbook on the Centennial College campus from which it was borrowed.
