How to borrow material from XPUB?

To borrow equipment and library books we will keep it simple and analog.

XPUB & LB use a system of borrowing sheets to keep a record of borrowed material from the storage.

Leslie, Manetta and Rossella use this system.


In the PZI Office there is a folder with label: LOANS

In the LOANS folder there are different sections:

  • LB
  • XPUB

How to loan equipment

When someone borrows a piece of equipment (s)he/they will fill one of the EMPTY FORMS, including:

  • name
  • student number
  • contact
  • lending date
  • expected returned date
  • signature

File the form in the relevant folder: LB or XPUB

Note: Ensure the planned date for returning the item is specified

When an item is returned:

  • A staff member needs to sign it in
  • Specify the return date
  • The staff member will place the form in the RETURNED ITEMS section

It is important to:

  • Check from time to time:
    • which items have not yet been returned within their expected returned date
    • might have been returned but were not signed of in its borrowing sheet
    • if necessary notify the borrower
  • Keep a bunch of copies of empty sheets for the future!
