Equipment may only be checked out by current Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff with a valid Hokie Passport and a library account in good standing.
An Equipment Loan Form must be read and signed each time a piece of equipment is checked out. Patrons cannot borrow equipment under another patron's name.
Equipment MUST be inspected for proper working condition before being checked in and removed from patron's account. Until the item is inspected, a patron cannot check out any other equipment.
Only one piece of equipment may be checked out on a patron's account at a time.
If an electronic equipment item has been billed to the bursar for non-return and then returned to the library, a processing fee charge of 20% of the cost of the item will be applied to the patron fees. This processing fee is in addition to the overdue fees.
Equipment must be returned no less than 30 minutes before the end of the operating day or be fined as an overdue item.
