Laptop Lending Program
Laptops may be checked out on a four hour loan by current CSUSB students with a valid Coyote OneCard (University ID). Prior to borrowing a laptop for the first time the borrower must sign a form accepting their responsibility for the laptop and the fees associated with not returning it, or returning it late or damaged. Laptops will circulate with a Kensington lock and charger, and may leave the library building. Laptops MUST be returned in person at the Check-Out (Circulation) Desk.
Loan Period / Renewals: Laptops may be borrowed for a four hour period. The loan may be renewed only one time for an additional four hour period. To renew the loan, bring the laptop to the Check-Out Desk, or renew online via My Library Account. If you owe more than $25.00 in library fines, you must renew in person at the Check-Out Desk.
Overdue fee: $10/hour; maximum of $480. After 48 hours, it is considered lost and the replacement fee will be charged.
Grace period: There will be a 30-minute grace period during which the laptop may be returned without penalty before late fees begin to accrue.

- Can I take the laptop to class?
- Yes. Laptops may leave the library building. The person who checks out the laptop is responsible should it be lost, damaged, or stolen.

- No. The laptop and accessories must be returned before the library closes at the end of the day, regardless of the amount of time left on the loan.
- Where will my print job go?
- Within the library, print jobs are sent to “Printer 3” which is located on the north side of the reference desk, on the first floor.
- Can I place a hold, or reserve a laptop?
- Can I save documents on the laptop?
- Not exactly. Any files saved on the laptop will disappear when the laptop is restarted or turned-on. Be certain to save your files to a USB drive, or upload them to a web service (such as Google Docs).
