iPad Checkout Policy

iPads may be borrowed from the Library’s Circulation Desk. The first time you borrow an iPad, you need to read the following iPad checkout policy and sign in agreement:

  • iPads are available for checkout by enrolled Effat University students, faculty and staff with a current library account who sign the iPad Loan Agreement. Users with overdue books or pending fines are ineligible to borrow iPads until they clear up their record.
  • Faculty may borrow an iPad for a maximum duration of one week at a time. An iPad loan can be renewed continually, unless someone else reserves it; it must then be returned to Effat Library for the next user.

  • Students and Staff may borrow an iPad for two days at time. An iPad loan can be renewed continually, until someone else reserves it; it must then be returned to Effat Library for the next user.
  • iPads can be reserved. It is recommended that borrowers use the Reserve feature through the Library website in order to get the opportunity to use an iPad currently on loan. However, staff cannot guarantee that a specific iPad will be available.
  • One iPad may be borrowed per user at a time.
  • If you use the audio feature of the iPad in Effat Library, you must wear headphones, so as not to disturb other library users.
  • None of the content on the iPads may be erased or copied on to other devices; neither should new content or files be added to the iPad. Returned iPads will be checked by Library staff to ensure that this is followed.
  • If the iPad is not returned on time, a fine of 50 SR will be charged per day. *Additionally, if the iPad is overdue for more than one week, during which time Effat Library has made reasonable attempts to contact the students—at least once by email and phone, the full cost of replacing the iPad which is 4000 SR will be charged.
  • iPads should be returned in person to a library staff member at the Main Circulation desk. Users who leave an iPad unattended at the Main Circulation desk on more than one occasion will lose their iPad borrowing privileges for the rest of the semester.
  • The user assumes full responsibility for damage to the iPad due to negligence or loss. The cost of replacement will be 4000 SR.
