    • May be lockable
  • Shared Storage
    • Temporary storage of projects and materials

Storage Areas

  • Area-Specific Storage
    • Area Leads may designate spaces for personal or shared storage of projects and materials within their areas as part of their access policies.
    • Storage areas must be clearly marked, and any guidelines for their use must be made clear and documented on the Wiki at the storage area.
    • Money generated by paid storage in an area will be used to support the budget of made available for use by that area.

Special Exceptions

    • These items must be tagged with the owner’s name and agreed upon start and end dates.

Improperly Stored Items

  • Any items that are stored in a way that does not conform to this policy will be considered a donation and disposed of as the corporation sees fit.

    • Items that hinder the operation of the space or violate a MakeICT policy may be immediately removed at the discretion of the director or area leadwill be dealt with quickly.
    • Notification of the owner will be attempted if a contact method is available, but is not guaranteed. Notification via a post on the official MakeICT forum may also be used and serve as sufficient notification prior to disposition of items.
    • Items that hinder the operation of the space, pose a safety risk, or violate a MakeICT policy may be immediately removed at the discretion of the director or area lead.
