Technology Use Policies

Equipment Checkout

Multimedia equipment can be reserved in advance by WFU students, faculty, and staff via this online request form. All reservations should be made at least one week in advance to insure proper processing of the request.

Checkouts are typically for one week. Extensions may be provided as inventory allows and should be requested at the time of reservation if needed. Late fees will accrue each day an item is late. The party reserving the equipment may be held responsible for damage, loss, or theft, and a replacement fee may be charged.

Items will be held for pickup at the Circulation Desk and should be returned to the Circulation Desk. ZSR Library is not responsible for any personal data left on our devices. Please remove any personal data before returning the equipment. Patron information regarding reservation requests may be held by the library indefinitely.

Equipment will come packed with necessary accessories; accessories should be returned with the equipment or replacement fees may be charged.

A day before equipment is due, a courtesy reminder is emailed to the user. Once the equipment is overdue, the fine will accrue on a daily basis for a two week period. Overdue notices showing the accrued charge are sent daily. After two weeks, the equipment is declared lost and a lost fee is incurred. If the student returns the item at that time, the lost charge will be forgiven, but the fine is still owed. Faculty and staff are not charged fines.

Overdue fines and replacement fees are determined as follows:

Overdue Fine
Replacement Fee
(based on equipment cost)
