Lending Rules

How do lending (loan) periods work?

At the Library, students borrow items (it's free, so it's not renting). Lending (loan) periods for technology work as follows:

Same Day Lending: The item has to be returned the day it was checked out.

e.g. you check out a Macbook Air laptop at 10:00 AM on a Thursday. The item is due that Thursday by closing (currently, 7:00 PM).

Quarter Length Lending: The item has to be returned by the end of the quarter the item is borrowed in.

e.g. You check out an iPad the first week of school in Fall Quarter. It is due before Fall Quarter ends.

How To Borrow

Borrowing technology works the same as borrowing a book from the library. All you need is:


Your Student ID (DASG) Card.
(If you do not have your card, you can use photo ID and your Student ID number. Need an ID card? Visit the Office of College Life!)
Be currently enrolled in classes and your fees paid

That's it!
