Robots may be checked out to UT Arlington faculty, staff, and students from the Central Library service desk for 3 hours. (Holidays and unexpected closing hours may impact the due time). Robots are in Library-use only.  For Questions and Troubleshooting visit the following http://library.uta.edu/robots  or email: Robots@uta.edu
By borrowing a Robot, the borrower agrees to:

  • Use of the Robot is primarily for academic purposes for the University of Texas at Arlington.
  • The equipment will be returned to the Central Library service desk at the designated time.
  • When a Robot is checked out, the individual doing so assumes financial responsibility for that property.
  • Any malfunctions or damage will be reported to Library staff at the time the Robot is returned.

Failure to return the Robot on time will result in late fees of $5 an hour with a maximum fine of $60.00.  The cost of a damaged or lost Robot and/or iPad while checked out may result in replacement costs up to $3000 that will be applied to the borrower’s MyMav account, in addition to any late fines and processing fees incurred. Failure to return a Robot or returning a Robot with extensive damages will result in a suspension of Robot borrowing privileges for the remainder of that semester and may result in a permanent suspension of Robot borrowing privileges. In addition, for students we will also report to the Office of Student Conduct.
