Please report any problems to a library staff member.
Mobile devices circulate from the Circulation desk in Bartle Library and the Information
Services Desk in the Science Library. Mobile devices must be used in the library.
Mobile devices are available on a first come, first served basis. They may not be
reserved in advance.
Mobile devices may be renewed once in person unless another borrower is waiting for
a device. Phone or email renewals will not be accepted.
Mobile device loan period is three hours, or until one-half hour before service desk
closes. All devices MUST be returned 30 minutes prior to the desk closing. Overdue
fines are $.25 per minute.
Borrowers who do not return mobile devices will have a hold placed on their Library
and Registrar record. Mobile devices not returned after 24 hours will be considered

will be assessed on an individual basis and charged in the same manner as an unreturned
