A suggestion to keep your laptop safe

You spent hundreds, perhaps thousands, on that sweet laptop you've got. That valuable computer contains lots of your academic research, class assignments, and personal data.

Does it make sense to spend a few more dollars to make sure the device is secure, if you take a break while studying in the Alexander Library?

Alexander Library has installed laptop lock rings on most tables in the 1st floor reference room and the undergraduate reading room. Kilmer Library has installed laptop lock rings on many of the study carrels on the second floor. Laptop locks and chains or wires can be purchased from the Rutgers' Barnes and Noble store on the College Ave. campus , the Kite + Key store on the Livingston campus, and from many office supply stores.

The best plan, of course, is to never leave your personal items unattended. But if you know you'll be needing to take breaks, and can't or won't carry all your stuff with you each time, a good laptop lock and chain can give you some wonderful peace of mind.
