DIGITAL EQUIPMENT POLICY
All digital equipment with a 4 day loan may be borrowed for only FOUR DAYS.
The fine for overdue digital equipment is:
If only a camcorder is 3 days overdue than there is a $30 charge.
If a camcorder and any of its components (battery, power adapter, firewire cable, etc.) are 3 days overdue than there is $60 charge.
When charges are billed to Boston College Student Accounts, the borrower is responsible for all charges associated with each item. The charges are dependent on the cost of replacing the particular item that is overdue or lost.
There will be a replacement charge for lost bags and tags.
Overdue charges will affect borrowing privileges at all Boston College Libraries.
