College Computing: What's in it for Me?

Borrowing laptops from Reynolds Libraries

Laptop Loan & Agreement

Laptops are available on a first come, first-served basis to current Reynolds students in good standing with the library.

A Reynolds ID or valid photo ID is required to check out any laptop.

Laptops are the responsibility of the student during the loan period. Laptops must be returned directly to a staff member to the same campus library where they were checked out.

The laptop remains checked out until library staff verify that all components are present and functional.

All files, documents, and logins will be erased once the laptop is returned to the service desk. No software or apps can be loaded onto the laptop. Please save any files to the cloud or a flash drive.

Printing is not currently available from laptops.

Only one laptop at a time may be checked out by a user.

The Library reserves the right to refuse service to anyone who abuses equipment, or is repeatedly late in returning materials or equipment.

Loan Period

Laptops may be borrowed for 4 hours or until 30 minutes before the library closes, whichever is earlier. One renewal is allowed for laptops if there are no other requests. Laptops cannot be checked out overnight.

Fine and Replacement

The overdue fine for laptops is $1.00/hour or partial hour when the library is open. Once the fine has reached $50.00, the laptop will be considered lost and a billing letter will be sent. The user may be billed for the full replacement costs for laptops/accessories lost, damaged or unreturned (please see the separate list of replacement costs, available in the library). A hold will be placed on the user’s MyReynolds account, and the user will not be allowed to register for classes, borrow library materials, request transcripts, or participate in graduation until the issue is resolved. The replacement charge is non-refundable once the semester ends.

Student acceptable use of computers, laptops, and mobile devices is governed by the college's policies in the Information Technology Student Acceptable Use Agreement, included in the College Catalog (Policies and Procedures section).
