Maintenance of policies regarding media reserves and loanable electronics can be difficult and sometimes downright daunting! This interactive session will be structured as a workshop to allow for attendees to modify or work on their own policies. I will present a thoroughly curated sample of media reserve policies from other institutions, along with the results of a pilot policy that my library is undergoing. The policy on loanable materials audits use, condition, age, and incorporates an assessment tool when items are turned in. There will be three sections of the session: a presentation, breakout work in small groups to create or modify policies, and a critical engagement section where participants will share their policies and engage in a critical discussion.
