Nicolet College Laptop/Netbook Lending Agreement

As a service offered by Nicolet Area Technical College, Library patrons in good standing are allowed to participate in the College’s Laptop/Netbook Lending Program (the “Program”) subject to the user’s agreement to abide by the Terms of Use for participation in the Program.  Under the Program, qualified individuals may check out designated laptop or netbook computers from the College’s library for certain periods of time.  All Program laptop/netbooks are owned by and belong to the College.

Terms of Use:

1.    The following terms apply to each loan and use of electronic equipment lent by Nicolet College Library. Upon closing and/or signing this document, the user acknowledges that this document has been read and understood and the user has agreed to the terms below.

3.    Loan Periods:  Subject to availability, each Qualified Individual is allowed to check out one laptop/netbook per loan period. Laptop/Netbook loans are renewable at the discretion of the library staff and may be denied based on factors including availability.  

4.    Return:  The laptop/netbook must be returned personally before the end of business on the date it is due. Do not use the outdoor/indoor drop boxes. If you are uncertain as to when your laptop/netbook needs to be returned, it is your responsibility to contact the Library to find out.

5.    Fines:  Overdue fines of $10.00/day will be charged to any patron who has a past due laptop. Unpaid fines will result in a loss of all library privileges and may also result in a hold on student records.

7.    Damage to the Laptop/Netbook:  If the laptop/netbook is damaged while in your possession, you will be charged for the cost of repairs and replacement parts.  If the damage appears to be the result of an intentional act, law enforcement may be contacted to pursue criminal charges.  Repair and replacement charges for damages to a laptop/netbook will be the actual cost of labor and parts.
