`Regulations

2 Those to whom equipment is loaned must take due care not to damage the equipment or occasion its loss.

3 Failure to comply with 1 or 2 above will be referred to the chairman of the Faculty Board, who may determine that the individual concerned shall be debarred from receiving further loans for a specified period. The chairman may further determine that the matter should be referred to the Proctors, under Title XIII, cl. 2(a).

Rules governing loans of laptop computers

All persons receiving on loan a Modern Languages laptop computer or any other equipment owned by the faculty board are required to observe the following terms and conditions:

1 Refer to and abide by the University and OUCS `Rules for Computer Use'.

2 Do not override or disable the anti-virus software installed on the machine. [Note: IBM-compatible users: when starting the machine, please allow it to run through the virus check, i.e. do not press Esc to override this check. Check all diskettes with the Sweep A: program from the DOS prompt before use.]

3 Refrain from modifying existing or installing additional software. [Note: If you wish to use software not already installed, please consult the faculty IT staff, via the Faculty Office.]

4 On return of the equipment, do not leave personal files on the hard disk. Copy these on to your diskette, then delete from the hard disk, taking care not to remove the program files.

5 Report any loss, damage, or hardware or software problems to the Faculty Office without delay. Technical problems will be referred to faculty IT staff for investigation. Do not attempt to effect any repair without consulting them.

6 Equipment issued on loan should not be used by anyone other than the borrower.

7 Machines are issued on loan for a stated period, normally a maximum of four weeks, which may be renewable on request if not required by another user. During the long vacation a loan may be authorised for up to three months.

8 Please ensure that all accessories provided, such as carry case, battery charger, mains adaptor, are present on return of the equipment. Note: The equipment is insured by the University, but the high excess payable in case of an individual claim means the cost of replacement would not be met even if a claim were accepted.'
