The Meriam Library has five Dell Latitude D630 laptops available for checkout to CSU, Chico students, faculty and staff. Courtesy patrons and non-affiliated users are not eligible. The laptops circulate as a set with carrying case, charger and battery pack.
Laptops are checked out from the Circulation counter on the 1st floor. They must be returned on or before the due date and time to a library employee at the Circulation counter -- not the book drop.
The laptop loan period is:
Late fees are $5 per hour to a maximum of $50. Any laptop that is not returned by closing on the day it is checked out will be declared lost. Charges will be based on the replacement cost of the laptop & its accessories plus fines and processing fees. If the laptop is returned within six months from the date of payment in "good working order" the item cost and processing fee may be refunded. The fines will not be forgiven. The laptop set and fees include:
You are responsible for any damage done to the laptop while it is checked out to you, and will be charged a damage fee based on the damage up to the cost of replacement. Also, you will be charged the replacement fee if a laptop is reported missing or stolen while checked out to your account.
