Please see our laptop and iPad policies.

The amount of equipment available to borrow is limited and must meet the needs of a large campus population. In order to make equipment available to as many patrons as possible, loan periods and policies are firmly enforced:

  • Borrowers that do not return equipment when it is due will be billed for replacement and associated costs.
  • Repeated billing for overdue laptops, iPads, and other equipment will result in the loss of borrowing privileges of these items. Loss of privileges will last until the end of the following semester.
  • Two of these restrictions within a two-year period will result in the permanent loss of equipment borrowing privileges from the Libraries.

Each library's Help Desk is the initial repository for lost and found items. Please make inquiries in person or over the phone.

Items that are found in the library should be turned in to the Help Desk where they will be logged and secured in the Lost and Found.

To claim an item from the Lost and Found the owner must provide an accurate description of the item and present his/her WyoOne Campus ID or a state/federal photo ID card.

Unclaimed WyoOne cards are forwarded to the Campus ID Office. All other Lost and Found items are transferred to the University of Wyoming Police Department, 1426 E. Flint or (307) 766-5179, on a weekly basis.

The University of Wyoming Libraries is not responsible for unattended personal items left in any library.

Use "My Accounts" to access the following information:

  • Items checked out to your main library account
  • Outstanding hold requests
  • Outstanding fees
  • Link to your Request It account to view Interlibrary Loan requests and checked out items

Use My Accounts to renew items that have not gone overdue or reached their renewal limits.

If QuickSearch indicates an item is "Available" but it is not on the shelf, ask at a Help Desk for a search. If the item is found, the Libraries will notify you by email and the item will be held for you for 7 days.

Once you have asked for a search, you may also request the item through Prospector or Request It (if you are a UW student, faculty or staff).

If the item cannot be found after multiple searches, the item's Catalog status will be changed to lost and library staff will review the item for possible replacement.
