Technology User Agreement

Expires every academic year on the first day of the fall semester and must be resigned. Signing it allows you to check out technology items and laptops from the Circulation Desk (based on availability).


Technology items and laptops are available to current UNLV students, faculty and staff who have a clear library account (no fines, overdue, etc.) Other restrictions may apply.

Checkout lengths

Range from 4 to 72 hours. Please pay close attention to the due date and time.

Technology items and laptops may have a slightly shorter checkout period if the due date is within the last 15 minutes of the Libraries’ operating hours.

Renewing items

Renewal options vary based on the type of technology. Please ask when checking out.

Overdue fines

Overdue laptops $10.00 per hour.

Other technology items range from $1.00 to $10.00 per hour. 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 University Libraries’ Computer Use Policy and the UNLV Computer Acceptable Use Guidelines.
 I will not leave the Libraries’ technology items or laptops unattended at any time, and I will protect them from damage.
 I understand laptops and all tech items must be returned to Circulation Desk staff.
    - Technology items and laptops returned in book drops or left at the Circulation Desk without Circulation Desk staff acknowledgement are subject to fines.
 I am responsible for tracking the time the technology items and laptops are due. I agree to pay the overdue fines (ranging from $1.00 per hour to $10.00 per hour for most items) if technology items and laptops are not on time.
 I accept full responsibility for the technology items and laptops and agree to reimburse the Libraries for the full cost of repairing or replacing if technology items or laptops 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 technology items and laptops that are 24 hours overdue will be declared lost.
    - The total replacement charge for the technology items and laptops 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.

Typing my name below is an acknowledgement 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 and laptop checkout privileges at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
