Description

Students

The UCLA Library and CLICC provide technology support and equipment loans to UCLA students in support of learning and research activities.

By creating an account on the CLICC Reservations Portal, currently enrolled students can request to reserve equipment for use during the academic term to support them while pursuing UCLA academic activities.  Most loan periods will span the quarter. 

PLEASE NOTE: As of 10/12/2020, no further in-person pickups are scheduled. All equipment will be shipped until further notice.

Equipment will be due back on or shortly after the last day of exams for the quarter.

Equipment available, while supplies last, include:

  • Laptops (Dell, HP, Macbook)

  • Chromebooks

In distributing equipment, specific course needs such as specialized applications and hardware required for assignments, will be considered.  Due to limited supplies, students may not receive their first-choice model, operating system or carrier.  

Instructors

In partnership with Information Technology Services (ITS), the Library has received additional equipment available for loans to instructors including teaching assistants (TAs) in support of teaching.

Equipment available, while supplies last, include:

  • Laptops (Dell Touchscreen, HP, MacAir, MacbookPro)

Instructors are encouraged to request equipment from their department or visit https://keepteaching.ucla.edu. If a department is unable to provide equipment, then instructors may borrow equipment from the Library.  All equipment will be available while supplies last.   

By creating an account on the CLICC Reservations Portal, currently employed instructors can request to reserve equipment for use during the academic term to support them while teaching.  Most loan periods will span the quarter. 



Policies

  • Equipment borrowing privileges may be revoked or suspended based on violations of policies at the discretion of Library Administration.
  • Prior to Spring, 2020, the UCLA Library and CLICC loaned any available equipment to all students, faculty and staff on a first come, first served basis.  Beginning Summer, 2020, the UCLA Library and CLICC will prioritize students with demonstrated course-related technology needs and work with Information Technology Services to procure additional equipment when possible.  Course-related technology needs will be identified by campus surveys of faculty and students.  Loan periods will span the quarter or academic year when possible.  CLICC fines and replacement costs will apply to all equipment loaned.

  • The Academic Continuity Task Force has provided the following parameters for UCLA Library technology lending.

    • International shipping for borrowed devices is not available.

    • Instructors are encouraged to request equipment from their department or visit https://keepteaching.ucla.edu. If a department is unable to provide equipment, then instructors may borrow equipment from the Library.  All equipment will be available while supplies last.     

    • Staff are currently not eligible for instruction-related equipment lending and should contact their departments or visit Information Technology Services; supplies permitting, some short-term loans for equipment may be available.

    • “Bulk borrowing” where a staff person submits a list of instructors for borrowing devices will not be possible.  Instructors may designate a proxy to pick up multiple devices but the online requests must be made individually with both the proxy and the instructors’ emails. Departments may submit requests on behalf of instructors or TAs but there must be an online request form created for each instructor to ensure that the instructor is aware of the device being loaned in their name.  

Late Fines

If you do not return your CLICC laptop, presentation kit, or other equipment on time, the fines are the following:

  • $0.20 per minute after a laptop or any equipment is late. 
  • After 24 hours from overdue, in addition to the late fee at $0.20 per minute (or $12.00 per hour), an Item Replacement Fee and a $43 flat processing fee will be charged.

PLEASE NOTE: During remote instruction, fines and fees will continue to be implemented.

A list of replacement fees for each item is posted at each lending location. 

Users are also responsible for any items that have been tampered with in any way or are missing.

Laptop and equipment fines are billed to your BAR account and show up a few days after the infraction.
