Technology & Laptop User Agreement Form

This User Agreement Form must be completed once every academic year. This Agreement will expire on the first day of each fall semester. After you complete this form you will be able to check out technology items from the Circulation Desk (based on availability).


  • Equipment, technology and laptops are available only to UNLV students, faculty and staff with a current UNLV RebelCard that has been registered with the University Libraries, and a clear record (no fines, overdue, etc.)
  • Checkout periods may range from 4 hours to 72 hours. Please, pay close attention to the due date & time for the item borrowed.
  • Items may have a slightly shorter checkout period if the due date is within the last 30 minutes of the library’s operating hours.
  • Renewal options vary based on the type of technology and the original loan rules. Please ask at checkout about your renewal options.
  • Fines on overdue laptops accrue at a rate of $10 per hour.
  • Fines for other digital technology range from $1 per hour to $10 per hour, depending on loan rules.  Please confirm at checkout.
  • The full hourly amount will be assessed for any portion of an hour overdue, even one minute.

Failure to comply with all terms and conditions of this agreement will result in the loss of technology borrowing privileges. Any library staff member may revoke these privileges at any time they deem necessary at their sole discretion.


 I have read, understand and accept the above conditions as well as the UNLV Libraries’ Digital Technology & Laptop Use Policy and the UNLV Computer Acceptable Use Guidelines.
 I will not leave the library technology unattended at any time, and I will protect it from damage.
 I understand laptops and all tech items must be returned to Circulation Desk Staff. Items left at the Circulation Desk without Circulation Desk Staff acknowledgement or returned in book drops are subject to fines.
 I am responsible for tracking the time the equipment and all accessories are due. I agree to pay the overdue fines (ranging from $1 per hour to $10 per hour for most items) if items are not on time.
 I accept full responsibility for the technology and all accessories and agree to reimburse the Libraries for the full cost of repairing or replacing if items are lost, stolen, or damaged while they are checked out in my name.
Replacement costs vary according to type and model of hardware, and we reserve the right to purchase an equal or similar model in case of discontinuation.
 I understand that equipment 24 hours overdue will be declared lost. The total replacement charge for the item(s) checked out will be immediately billed to my library or Bursar’s account. If the exact model is no longer available, replacement cost will be the actual price of a similar item or accessory in terms of quality, durability, and performance.
 I will not add, delete, or alter computer hardware, software, or settings.
 I understand that ALL FILES AND/OR APPS WILL BE ERASED when the laptop is shutdown or restarted. Library Staff cannot retrieve lost files and are not responsible for any data loss.
 I understand that due to COVID-19 the University Libraries is following OCLC Realm Project and CDC Guidelines to quarantine certain items for 96 hours. Availability of these items will be limited.
My signature below acknowledges that I have read and agree to the terms above.  It also indicates that I understand that this agreement, which will be kept on file at the Library, is binding and enforceable during the entire period in which I have technology checkout privileges at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
