Technology User Agreement

Signing this agreement allows you to check out technology items and laptops from the Circulation Desk (based on availability).

This agreement expires every academic year on the first day of the fall semester and must be resigned.

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

Checkout lengths

Please pay close attention to the due date and time.

Depending on the item, there are different checkout loan periods.

  • End of day, must be returned 15 minutes before closing (laptops, chargers, cables, etc.)
  • 7 days (cameras, tripods, microscopes, etc.)

Renewing items

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

Overdue fines

  • Overdue fines for cameras and accessories are $10.00 per day. 
  • Overdue fines for laptops are $10.00 per day. 
  • Overdue fines for all other technology Items are $1.00 per day. 

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 policies 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 returned 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.
