I forgot to add that we circulate 150 laptops at our main campus library
and 30 at our Science library. We've been circulating laptops since
January 2001. Laptops can only be checked out to current students,
faculty, and staff. During the last 5 years, we've only had one student
walk out with a laptop never to return. We've had some thefts, mostly
from users leaving them unattended. We also offer lock down cables.
We've had some damage. Mostly broken or crack monitors. Laptops are
visibly inspected upon return.
Knock on wood, we haven't had one stolen for quite a while now.

Here is a link to our laptop policy.
I'll forward you our loan rules off list. Also, we use a pop-up laptop
agreement (users click OK) instead of having them sign a paper copy. I
can give you more details on this if you are interested.

If your library loans laptops to patrons could you please share your
loan rule and/or policy.
I don't want to create a silly loan rule or a policy that requires three
forms of ID and your mother's maiden name, but I'm also not excited
about the prospect of patrons walking off with a laptop.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
