Laptop Circulation Guidelines

Laptops for Semester Checkout

The library has a limited number of laptops available for students to check out for the entire semester. These laptops are available to students on a first-come, first-serve basis and may only be checked out after discussing needs and resources with a UA Little Rock Care Team member. Requests for semester checkout may be made via the Care Team website.

Laptops for Use within the Library

Ottenheimer Library will check out laptops for in-library use to currently active UA Little Rock students, faculty and staff.  Laptops are available on a first-come, first-served basis.


  • Laptops may be checked out for three hours for use within the library.  Library laptops cannot leave the building at any time and must be promptly returned to the desk when due.  All laptops must be returned one hour prior to closing.
  • Patrons may only check out one laptop at a time and must be the sole user of the equipment.
  • Users are responsible for the laptop and peripherals at all times.
  • Laptop check-outs may be renewed when no other else is waiting.

IMPORTANT:  Users should save all personal data to an external source such as Google Drive or a USB memory device frequently when using a laptop to prevent data loss.  Ottenheimer Library is not responsible for any lost documents or data.

Replacement Cost

Users are responsible for full replacement costs of any laptop and/or peripherals that are damaged, lost, or stolen while in their possession.  Laptops and peripherals that are not returned by closing will be considered lost and the user will be responsible for the replacement cost of $900.
