Lock Down that Portable!
Laptop computers can be an attractive target for thieves, especially when left unattended and insecure. You can easily deter these types of loses with the use of a security device such as a Kensington Notebook MicroSaver Security Cable. They are available at the college bookstore. There are also a pool of laptop locks at the circulation desk of the library that patrons can borrow for a 24-hour reserve.
Most dorm rooms are equipped with a security anchor installed on the desk. (If you need one, please contact the Office of Residential Life at x2305.) We suggest you use this device when your laptop is being used in your room. Anchors are located on almost all of the study tables and carrels in the library.
