Chromebook checkout policy

Chromebook checkout policy

Ripon College has purchased these technology items in order to provide students, faculty and staff access to technology. It is our hope to promote and enhance innovative teaching and learning methods, as well as provide understanding and familiarity with evolving technology.

  • A replacement charge will be imposed if the device is not returned within three days of the due date, including if it is lost or stolen. (replacement cost for latest model and accessories, approximately up to the following amount: Chromebook $400)
  • If damage occurs to any components or accessories, charges will be imposed as appropriate.
  • Checkout period is 1 week.
  • To renew your Chromebook, bring it to the front desk. If we are running low on Chromebooks (<5), please wait 24 hours before checking out again to give everyone a chance to use them.
  • Return the device to the front desk. Do not place the device in the book drop.
  • All components (charging/syncing cables, bag/covers, memory cards) must be returned at the same time.
  • The borrower is responsible for removing/transferring any documents, images, software or apps purchased or added to library equipment before returning it. All user information and content will be removed when the equipment is returned and cannot be recovered by the library.
  • Never leave library equipment in an enclosed car or exposed to direct sunlight, as this may damage the equipment, and you could be assessed a repair/replacement charge up to the full cost of the damaged equipment.
  • Never leave library equipment unattended or loan it to another person; you are responsible for the equipment until you have returned it to a librarian and it is checked in.


What about my personal data (passwords, email, etc.)?

The safest action is to remove any personal information from the device before you return it. Remember to sign out of the Chromebook before returning it, and delete any images or files on the camera and camcorders. The Library is not responsible for anything you put or leave on our equipment.

How long can I keep a digital device?

Loan periods vary by item. Chromebooks are 1 week, and most other devices will be either 3 days or 3 hours. Search for the device you’re interested in using the library’s catalog.

How can I find out if a device is available?

Search for the item in the library’s catalog. You will see the item’s availability there.
