Webcam Circulation Policy


A current barcoded Touro ID or library card is required to check out Webcams to those who maintain a valid library account in good standing. A Webcam Loan Agreement must be read, agreed to, and signed.

Loan Period

The loan period is 14 days for students, staff, and faculty. Webcams must be checked out and dropped off during regular library hours. Webcams are not eligible for renewal. Webcams must be returned to the library circulation desk from where they originated.

Fines and Damages

A $5 late fee will be assessed for each day the Webcam is returned past its due date. Fines will be recorded on the borrower’s library record and may result in borrowing and registration restrictions.

The working condition of the Webcam will be assessed before checkout and upon its return. Users are responsible for damage to and/or loss or theft of loaned unit. Users are required to report any problems experienced with the Webcam during their borrowing period.

The replacement cost for a lost, stolen, or damaged Webcam is $99. If a Webcam is 3 days overdue it is considered lost or stolen and the borrower will be charged for its replacement.

A charge of $15 will be assessed for a lost case.
