Equipment Loan Policies

Reserve Equipment

To reserve equipment, contact Media Services at 253.879.3963, media@pugetsound.edu, or by visiting the Tech Center in Collins Library 018.

Checkout and Renewal

Depending on availability and demand for the item, equipment may be loaned for up to one week. Certain items, because of demand, may only be available for checkout for one day. If you need an item for an extended loan period, contact Media Services prior to checking out the equipment to confirm availability. If equipment is not booked in advance, availability is not guaranteed, and renewals may not be authorized. 

Student Late Fees

Overdue equipment will accrue fines of $1 per day. When an item has been overdue for 30 days, it is automatically marked as lost, and the patron will be fined for the replacement cost of the item. Late fines can be paid at the Circulation Desk on the main floor of Collins Memorial Library.

Patron Responsibility for Items

If one patron checks out an item, even if they give the item to another patron for use, the patron who initially checked out the item is responsible for its return to the Media Services Desk, and will be held responsible for any associated fines or fees. If you intend on giving an item you have on loan to a second patron, have that patron come to the Media Services desk (to verify ID), inform us they are taking possession of the equipment, and set a new due date, so that responsibility is transferred to the second patron.
