Library Laptop Loan

Rogers Library Laptop Loan Program

Only currently enrolled Francis Marion University students with a valid FMU ID card may borrow library laptops.

Only borrowers in good standing (no outstanding fines or overdue books) may borrow a laptop.

Laptop borrowers assume full financial responsibility for damage, loss, or theft of the laptop and its peripherals, regardless of use inside or outside the library, and must sign a laptop liability agreement at the beginning of each semester.

Laptops are available on a first-come-first-served basis and may not be reserved in advance.

Only one laptop may be checked out to a borrower at any given time.

The loan period for laptops is one (1) day, with no renewal.

Laptops must be returned to a circulation staff person, not left in a book drop or on the counter of the circulation desk.

At check-out and check-in, the borrower is required to be present and witness the physical inspection of the laptop to insure that the laptop is functioning and that all equipment is intact and undamaged.

Printing is not available from the laptop.  Data should be saved to an external storage device, such as a USB drive, or e-mailed as an attachment.

Data saved to the laptop will be erased and cannot be recovered when the laptop is rebooted or powered off.

Charges will be assessed as follows for overdue fines and replacement.  Damage charges will be assessed on the basis of the extent of damage and may be equal to replacement charges.
