Laptop Lending

If you have a valid UR ID, you can borrow a laptop (PC or Mac), from the Answer Desk. Each laptop comes equipped with Microsoft Office Suite and popular web browsers like Edge (PC), Safari (Mac), Firefox, and Chrome. You'll also get a laptop case and power cord.

Customer Responsibilities and Loan Period

Anyone borrowing equipment must sign an Electronic Equipment Agreement (this only needs to be done one time). Laptops are due back on the day they are checked out, 15 minutes before close. Equipment may not be returned at other UR libraries. Replacement fees are outlined in the Equipment Agreement and also listed here.

Saving Your Work

IMPORTANT! Material saved on the hard drive or desktop WILL BE LOST when the computer is shut down or loses power for any reason. The library assumes no responsibility for the loss of, or damage to, any file placed on or used on the laptop.
Save your work frequently to a permanent location by either:

  • Saving to Box.
  • Emailing your work as an attachment.
