Information on the use of loanable iPads

Lost or damaged iPads

Once you have issued an iPad to your library account, you are accepting full responsibility for any loss or damage to the equipment caused by your negligence or improper use. You will be asked to pay the cost of full repair or replacement of any equipment lost or damaged as a result of your negligence or improper use.

 

Penalties for late return

All iPads must be returned prior to the due date / time. A financial penalty will be applied for late return – immediate fine of £5 followed by a further £5 per hour to a maximum of £75.

 

Problems with equipment

In the event of a problem with the equipment during your loan period, please contact a member of library staff. Do not attempt to fix any faults yourself as this could invalidate the warranty and leave you liable for any damage or replacement costs.

 

Saving work and logging out

You can log into your Apple ID on the iPad, please remember to log out once you have finished.
