The Libraries are committed to providing a safe and studious environment for members of the Rutgers community as well as the general public. In order to help library patrons better secure their laptops and other mobile equipment, the Alexander and Kilmer libraries have recently installed lock anchors for laptop security cables. The laptop lock anchors are securely affixed to tables and carrels throughout the first floor of the Alexander Library, as well as many of the second-floor study carrels in the Kilmer Library.

While using your laptop security cable with our laptop lock anchor provides some protection, please keep in mind that leaving any property unattended can lead to opportunistic theft. To further safeguard yourself and your property , bring your belongings with you when you leave your study space or ask a trusted friend to be your "laptop buddy." Please keep in mind that all are welcome in the Rutgers Libraries, and you should safeguard your property as you would in any other public location.
