Technology Lending

Fines and Fees

  • The UNCG "Acceptable Use of Computing and Electronic Resources Policy" and the University Libraries govern the use of all technologies in the Technology Lending program.
  • The first time each borrower borrows technology from the Libraries they must sign a technology borrowing agreement.
  • Failure to abide by the agreement may result in Academic Integrity Violation fees and/or actions including suspension and/or revocation of equipment borrowing privileges.
  • Technologies must be returned to the desk from which they are borrowed; they should never be put into a book drop or left unattended.
  • Overdue fines have no grace period and are assessed for the first 7 days items are overdue. Hourly fines are assessed whenever the library is open; daily fines increment at midnight. On the 8th day overdue, borrowers are billed for replacement costs plus at $20 processing fee per item. Return of billed items reduces the bill to the overdue fines plus the processing fees.
