Borrowers must agree to and sign a UCBA Library Laptop Borrower’s Agreement stating the borrower is responsible for the cost of any damages while in their custody; up to the replacement cost of the laptop.

  • The agreement must be initialed at each check-out during the same academic year.
  • A newly signed agreement is required for each academic year.

The UCBA Library has four lapdesks available for two-hour checkout for campus use.
