  2. If you are a current Rutgers student, faculty, and staff you are eligible to checkout a laptop or netbook.

  3. Laptops or netbooks are currently available at the Alexander, Art, and Kilmer libraries. Go to the library's circulation desk and present your RUconnection card.

  4. Before you can begin using a laptop or netbook, , open it and read and accept the Laptop/Netbook Lending Agreement.

  5. Laptops and netbooks may only be used in the library. The loan period is 4 hours from the time of check out, or until 15 minutes before closing time.
