Webcam Check Out Information

Information regarding checking out webcams:

  • Only University administration, faculty, staff, and students may check out webcams. No other patron groups will be allowed to check these devices out.
  • Anyone checking out webcams must have a valid University Picture ID. No other form of ID will be accepted.
  • Webcams will circulate for two weeks. These devices should be returned to the Library in person. In the event there is a waiting list, those on the list will receive priority. If there is no waiting list, the item may be checked out again.
  • Webcams may be checked out and mailed to University students and faculty who live outside Calhoun County. Those who receive a webcam via the mail will be responsible for the cost involved in mailing the device back. We recommend that you use a service that provides tracking information for your own protection.
  • Late fees are $10.00 per day. The maximum fine is $200.00. There is a grace period of 1 day. Any webcam that is 24 hours overdue will be declared lost and a charge of $200.00 plus applicable fines and fees will be billed to the user's account. If the webcam is returned in good condition, the $200.00 lost charge may be forgiven. Overdue/late fines and processing fee will not be forgiven.
  • Users are responsible for any and all damage to the webcam while it is checked out under their name. They may be charged a damage fee of up to $200.00, dependent on the cost of repair or replacement. Users will be charged the full replacement cost of the item ($200.00) if the webcam is lost or stolen while checked out.
