What am I allowed to do on Library Computers? Can I download music?

The Zach S. Henderson Library has set rules and regulations on computer use as necessary to ensure that all library users have free and equal access. Patrons are only allowed to use one workstation at a time. The library reserves the right to prohibit the use of its computers for activities not directly related to research, study or administrative functions. The burning of cd’s is allowed, but you must adhere to the copyright law which prohibits the unauthorized reproduction or distribution of copyrighted materials, except as permitted by the principles of “fair use.” Users may not copy or distribute electronic material mail, text, images, programs or data and sound video clips,) without the explicit permission of the copyright holder. Any responsibility for any consequences of copyright infringement lies with the user. The library expressly disclaims any liability or responsibility arising from access to or use of information obtained through its electronic information system, or any consequences thereof.

What do I do if someone near me is using a computer to view pornography?

Sometimes library computer users may view material from the Internet which may be considered offensive to others. If a library computer user finds him/herself is offended then (s)he may go to the nearest help desk and report the offense to the library employee on duty. Because the library employee in most instances cannot determine whether the offensive material is for academic purposes, the library employee cannot ask the viewer to cease unless the viewer is a minor or there is absolute certainty the viewing has no academic purpose. The library employee will ask the complainant if (s)he would like to move to another computer away from the viewer of the offensive material. If the complainant says “yes” then the library employee will assist that person by finding an available computer away from the offensive material being viewed. Otherwise, the viewer will be asked to relocate to another computer and (s)he will be assisted with moving to an available computer away from public view to ensure

  1. no one is offended by the material and
  2. the viewer can continue his/her academic work.

If a library employee can determine with 100% certainty the offensive material being viewed is not for academic purposes then the library employee reserves the right to ask the viewer to cease. If the viewer refuses to cease then one or more actions may be taken:

  1. (s)he may be asked to leave the library with or without campus security
  2. (s)he may lose computer use privileges
  3. (s)he may appear before the University Judicial Board
  4. any other action deemed necessary by the Library Administration
For additional policies on computer usage, please see University’s Information Technology Services policies page.
