Laptop Circulation Policy

Circulation Loan Period: 
  • Laptops circulate to currently enrolled UNC Charlotte students, faculty, and staff
  • UNC Charlotte ID must be presented for checkout
  • Laptops circulate for a twenty four hour loan period with no renewals
  • There is a four hour wait before next check out for the same patron
  • If you return a laptop for someone else, you will still have a four hour wait before being able to check out another laptop
  • Laptops do not circulate within one hour of posted closing times
Circulation Fines: 
  • Laptop fines are $1.00 per hour or any part of an hour
  • Additional $10.00 fine if kept another night beyond the due date. (i.e. a $10 charge will be added to the hourly fines accrued)
Circulation Replacement Costs: 
Patrons are responsible for replacing missing or damaged parts or the entire cost if lost or stolen while in your possession.
This policy currently applies to all library circulated material. Each item required to use the laptop will be priced separately.  
Current Replacement Costs for Laptops are shown on the laptop screen when the computer is turned on. 
An additional $ 20 processing fee will be added to all replacement costs.

Technical Specifications: 
  • Laptops are wired- and wireless- capable
  • Additional software includes the Microsoft suite:
o        Access
o        Excel
o        FrontPage
o        PowerPoint
o        Publisher
o        Word 
  • Patron work can be saved to the hard drive
  • Laptops will be protected with DeepFreeze which will restore the original image after the computer is restarted, thereby assuring a clean image for each patron and minimal maintenance by Circulation staff. Drive T will, however, not be deleted upon reboot, so saved patron files will not be automatically deleted.
  • Each laptop has a media base with a CD/DVD drive for saving files.
