  • By checking on the box above, I agree to the terms of the Baystate Health Sciences Library’s lending policy for circulating books and media (three-week loan period) and reserve materials (one day). Any material I have not returned or renewed by the due date will be assumed lost and will incur a replacement fee.

    When borrowing a laptop, I understand that I am fully responsible for the safe and timely return of my borrowed laptop to the Health Sciences Library. I acknowledge that I have read and understand the Laptop Checkout and Use Policies (See Attachment A). If loss, damages or overdue fees are incurred, I understand that I am responsible for all charges.
