Equipment must be returned to the I&RC. Upon return of equipment, patrons should be prepared to wait for staff to check functionality.
Patrons are not allowed to check out equipment on behalf of other individuals, campus groups, units or departments. The student who checks out equipment is solely responsible for any and all fees and fines associated with each piece.
Patrons may not use any services or equipment to support work for a private company or a personal gain.
If not returned by the due date, the replacement fee will be charged immediately.
Equipment will remain checked out to the patron until all accessories (wires, cables, batteries, manuals, etc.) are returned. Late fees will accrue until all items are returned. If a patron decides to return an item without all pieces in order to avoid late fees, the cost of the missing piece(s), and shipping and handling for the order will be charged to the patron’s account.
If equipment is declared lost, both the total replacement charge and a lost processing fee of $15.00 will be billed to the patron’s account.
Patrons are responsible for any damage done to equipment while checked out to their account and will be charged repair fees or a replacement fee, whichever is less.
Patrons will be charged a replacement fee if equipment is reported missing or stolen while checked out to their account.
A full refund of replacement charges (not including overdue and processing fees) will be given if lost billed items are returned within one week of the due date in the same condition as it was upon checkout.
A partial refund of replacement charges (not including overdue and processing fees) will be given if lost billed items are returned within two weeks of the due date in the same condition as it was upon checkout.
All patrons must adhere to and abide by the University Libraries Code of Conduct and Acceptable Use Policy. Failure to abide by any of these policies may result in loss of Circulation privileges.
Some equipment may not be allowed to circulate over extended semester or holiday breaks.
