Lost or Stolen Device and/or Associated Equipment
In the event the device or related equipment is lost or stolen, the student must file a police report and contact the library within 48 hours. To file a police report, you must immediately notify the local police (and campus police/sheriff if the theft occurred on campus). After filing a report with the police, you must provide the library with a copy of the police report. Failure to file a report of stolen property with the police will result in the student's liability for the above-mentioned fines for loss/damage.
