Users must remember they are in a public building and show consideration for others when viewing Internet materials. Library Internet users are expected to act in a responsible and ethical manner consistent with all policies of the library. Use of the Library’s Internet service can be revoked for any violation of the Library’s policy. Public use of the Internet is a privilege provided by the Library, not a right, and Library personnel reserve the right to cease usage of any individual at any time. Due to the limited number of public access computers, use is limited to individuals with a valid Library card or a guest pass. Guest passes are available for users who do not already have a library card within the UHLS. The library also reserves the right to enforce rules to provide equitable Internet access for all patrons.
Parents and guardians are responsible for the monitoring and restricting of their child’s use of the Internet at the Library.
In accordance with federal and state laws and regulations, users are not permitted to access the Internet in the library for any illegal or criminal purpose, including, but not limited to:
- Unauthorized or illegal copying of copyright-protected material.
- Displaying explicit sexual material.
- Hacking and similar activities.
- Violating the computer or network security system.
- Unauthorized use of computer accounts, access codes or network identification numbers.
- Violating software license agreements.
- Harassment or stalking.
