General Policies

Unless otherwise noted, all items are 4 hour, or 2 day, out-of-building checkouts (Due to high demand and limited supply, laptops are only available on a first-come, first-served basis. Laptops circulate for 4 hours at a time). Renewals are often allowed, but they are predicated on availability. You must check with Public Services for any equipment renewal.

Overdue fines for equipment with a 4 hour loan period may be assessed at a rate of $1 per hour.

Laptops, Camcorders, Cameras, iPads and Kindles are subject to higher daily overdue rates, up to the replacement cost of the item. 

Items are inspected upon checkout and return. An item is expected to be returned in the same condition in which it was loaned.

Failure to return equipment on time will result in registration blocks, fines, suspension of gadget borrowing privileges, or billing for the replacement cost of the item.

The Library assumes no liability for misuse of borrowed equipment.

For questions related to fines, holds, or account blocks, please contact customersupport@library.gatech.edu.

Rates are quoted based on the price paid for the item, though the Public Services Department reserves the discretion to modify these rates. Replacement of equipment will also be subject to a $20 processing fee.
