Loaner Equipment Guidelines
Technology equipment, such as computers, cameras, and projectors, is available through the ITS Loaner Program for check out by any currently employed faculty or staff member with a valid BearID. The equipment becomes the responsibility of the faculty or staff member at check-out time. PGP encryption software will be installed on all checkout laptops, which will require a password setup at the time the loaner
laptop is picked up from ITS. Please allow extra time for this purpose.
Because all laptop computers must be reimaged with PGP, all reservations
must be made one business day (24 hours) prior to the day that the equipment is
needed. The maximum length of time for a loaner is three weeks. Only one item of each available type of equipment can be checked out at a time. Equipment must be returned by noon on the date that it is due. Participants in the Loaner Program are expected to follow the Proper Use of Loaner Equipment Guidelines. If equipment is lost or stolen, a police report must be filed. Any exception to this guideline must be approved.
The Loaner Program was established to provide access to equipment needed by faculty and staff when traveling for university business purposes, working on special projects from home, or for other extenuating circumstances. Due to the limited number of laptop computers, digital cameras and projectors in the Loaner Program, these guidelines were created to ensure fair and appropriate distribution of equipment and to establish the expectations for proper use of the equipment in the Loaner Program.
The ITS loaner program is a service provided to Baylor faculty and staff for university-related purposes only. Signature on the checkout form indicates agreement to this stipulation and acceptance of responsibility for the care of the equipment borrowed. Violation may make the borrower subject to the cost of repair or replacement of the equipment in the case of damage or loss.
