Loaner laptops are only available to current students, faculty, and staff at FCSL. Exceptions to this cannot be made. Each time a laptop is checked out, it must be checked in and out through the Sierra system at the SYNC desk. The laptop and the power cord each have a barcode that must be scanned. Loaner laptops are checked out for 3 days; overdue laptops will be billed for $1225 ($1100 for the laptop; $100 for the power cord; $25 billing and processing fee) and have an immediate hold place on their library account. Renewals can only be made in person at the discrestion of the LTC staff.
Emergency exits are located in the service elevator corridor in the middle of each floor and the southeast corner of each floor of the LTC. Fire extinguishers and alarms are also located throughout the LTC. In the event of a fire alarm or fire drill, immediately walk to the nearest exit (do not use the elevators), and follow all instructions of the FCSL staff.
The LTC supports the right to privacy of our users. The LTC staff is unable to disclose the location of any LTC user. The LTC will not disclose material that a person has borrowed, nor will the LTC disclose the person who has borrowed certain material.
