Terms of Use

Loan Period: Equipment is loaned for up to three hours on a first come first served basis, and cannot be renewed or reserved. Computers must be returned within 30 minutes of the library closing regardless of check-out time.


Theft or damage to computers and/or peripherals will result in fines and or replacement costs. An overdue fee of $0.01 per minute applies to loaner laptops. After 24 hours, the borrower is billed a replacement fee based on current Harvard-vendor agreements that govern computer costs, plus a 10% administration fee.
