Our Laptop and Chromebook Policies Have Changed (effective 2/26/16)
- All of the laptops and Chromebooks at the SMCM Library are now available for two-week loan. There are no more three-hour loans for these devices.
- They are now subject to overdue fines of $10.00 per day. If they reach seven days overdue, they will incur a replacement fee of $500.00. This fee will be waived if the device is returned, but any daily overdue fines will remain (i.e., if it is returned 10 days late, there will be a $100.00 fine).
- If all the devices are checked out, you may place a hold on one using the SMCM Catalog (search for “laptop computer” or “chromebook computer”). The next one that is returned will be placed on the hold shelf for you. You will receive an email notifying you when it arrives and you must pick it up within 24 hours.
- The devices are not renewable online. If you want to borrow the device again, you must bring it to the circulation desk and we will check it in and immediately check it out to you again. Note that if someone has placed a hold on the device, you will not be able to check it out again.
