Thank you Cindy. That is our intention - barcoded, cataloged, and checked out through our library who can officially put a hold on student records; however, since this is the first time doing this, neither I nor the library know what to write up in a loan policy that would cover all bases.

We do loan equipment, but the equipment is barcoded and checked out through our library. If the equipment is not returned, the student cannot re-register for classes. The system has only gone awry once in 15 years because the student dropped off the face of the earth. Other than that, the outcomes are positive.

Subject: [Athen] equipment loan policies?

Hello Fellow Athenites!

I'm wondering if any of you/your colleges have an equipment loan program (CCTVs? (portable or ?), laptops with AT installed, ALDs, etc. And, if you do, do you have a written policy/statement of rights and responsibilities for students, and do you have them sign something before they are loaned the equipment? I hope this makes sense. And, would you be willing to share those documents with me so I have some idea of how to craft our documents.

We're finding more and more of our students in disadvantaged situations, and where they do not qualify for state services for a variety of reasons. In the case of low vision who could utilize a portable CCTV such as a Topaz PHD or like, it would seem advantageous to allow them to check out a portable device to carry between campuses, classes and home. Yes, I know... 3,000$ +/- is a lot for replacing a piece of equipment that may or may not come back in a workable state but...

Thank you in advance.
