From the tips from Bitlair hackerspace:
In addition to donating equipment, the practice of loaning equipment TO TAMI can be very beneficial.
In order to encourage and facilitate this practice we should establish a labeling procedure.
Tentative structure of note and procedure, feedback welcome:
Part 1 - a note structure
- A note to say the equipment is “on loan from” (a private person, or institute )
no hacking allowed / maintenance only / hack only with prior permission / free to hack / free to dismantle
cannot leave TAMI / can be loaned off-TAMI with prior permission / can be loaned , please inform group
- Contact details for private individual or institute & expected loan expiry date (if exists)
Part 2 - practice of the community:
- it’s the responsibility of TAMI to facilitate a ready-to-use label / pre-printed note to stick on the equipment at a fixed location (e.g. at the entry desk), and
- Not every individual is going to remember to use it simply because it’s there, especially not at the start so it’s the responsibility for everyone to encourage this in order to become a norm and even show where and how to fill out the form on behalf of whoever the equipment belongs to (especially of currently known private equipment ) because in the end the loan is doing TAMI a great service.
