Borrowing Laptops

The UW-Parkside Library has a limited number of PC and Mac laptops available for check-out to UW-Parkside students. Students must complete a responsibility agreement form, accepting responsibility for any loss or damage to the laptop and for costs associated with repair or replacement. Students may not reserve laptops ahead of time. Students may borrow laptops for up to eight hours; they must be returned one hour before the library closes.

Borrowers returning laptops late will be assessed fines at the rate of $5.00/hour, with a maximum total fine of $100.00. Borrowers who have borrowed laptops that have become lost or stolen will be assessed the cost of the laptop and accessories.

Selected AV equipment is available from the CTS helpdesk.
