Check Out Equipment At The SNO Circ Desk

The UW Tacoma Library equipment collection gives students and faculty access to equipment to be used in our buildings or at home. All equipment is available at the SNO service desk in the Snoqualmie Building. The desk is open during all the library's operating hours. Bring your Husky Card to check out equipment. Equipment should be returned in person to the desk, not in a book drop. Please do not leave library equipment unattended in public spaces.

Information about Fines and Fees

Fines apply all days and all hours, even if the library is closed, and are assessed after an item is overdue. Fees are levied to defray the costs incurred by the Libraries in billing, processing sanctions and other activities related to the recovery of material. Overdue University of Washington Tacoma Library equipment accrues fines for each hour that it is overdue. Each hour the item accrues a $2.50 fine up until 10 hours at which point the item is billed as lost with the replacement cost and $30 lost item processing fee. If you an equipment item you have checked out is damaged, lost, or stolen please contact library staff via email at taclib@uw.edu or by phone at (253) 692-4849.
