Library Policies and Procedures: Laptop Circulation Policy

Laptop Circulation Policy




Laptop Circulation Policy

Dalton State College Roberts Library offers currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff the use of wireless laptops.  By checking out a Roberts Library laptop, users agree to abide by all circulation and stated responsibilities. 

Users assume full responsibility and fiscal liability for the laptop computer issued by Roberts Library during the period it is checked out.  Users will reimburse Dalton State College for the loss of or damage to any laptop computer checked out and the College may use appropriate means to collect the amount which may be owed.

A valid DSC identification card is required in order to checkout a wireless computer.  These laptops are only issued to current DSC students, faculty, and staff.

The display of offensive, obscene, hate or harassing material will NOT be tolerated and the offender will be asked to leave the library.

Roberts Library loans laptops for a period of 3 hours and for use IN THE LIBRARY ONLY.  Computers are due back at the Circulation Desk no later than 20 minutes prior to closing time for the Library.

Fines for laptops: The fine will be $50.00 per day per item.  If the item is lost, there will be a processing fee and a replacement cost charged to the borrower.  The processing fee is $50.00 and the lost item replacement fee will be $250.00, but could be more depending on the item.

Personal files and assignments may be saved to the user’s own thumb drive or other device.  Personal files will not be kept on the laptops for users.

If a user tampers with a laptop or attempts to remove it from the Library, they will be barred from future use of Library wireless laptops and will be reported to Campus Security for further disciplinary and/or legal actions.

While reasonable efforts have been made to enhance security, wireless access is inherently less secure than hardwired connectivity. Wireless network access may be monitored on a regular basis in order to ensure secure and proper access.
