LAPTOP CIRCULATION POLICY

A limited number of laptops are available for a two-hour, in-library checkout to current University of Missouri - St. Louis students. Laptops may be checked out at the Thomas Jefferson Library Circulation/Reserve Desk on the main floor (third level).

Students will be asked to complete a Library Laptop Use Agreement accepting responsibility for any loss or damage to the laptop computer. Cost of repair including replacement costs.

Each laptop includes an Information Sheet for Laptop Use, which includes basic operational tips. For further information on the operation of laptops or other computer related questions, see the Student Assistants in the Library Research Commons in the Thomas Jefferson Library.

Users: UMSL students must present a valid University ID card and must be current in the Libraries' circulation system; laptops will not be loaned if there is a delinquent charge on the student's circulation record. Laptops will be checked out for two-hour use in the Libraries, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Fines and Charges: Damages to equipment and peripherals will be based on the cost of replacement or repair. These charges will be subject to the same collection procedures that are used for fines for damaged or lost library materials. Overdue laptops will accrue fines. All laptops are due to the Circulation Desk before the Libraries close each evening. There is a replacement charge for damage to the laptop and or its peripherals of up to $1630.00.
