  • Do not use the Computer Lab as a social gathering place.
  • No food or drink is allowed in the Computer Lab.
  • Maximum two persons per computer.
  • Users may not use more than one workstation at any given time as to provide equal access for all users.
  • No time limit for any individual who uses the Lab computer, except for when a scheduled class is in session.
  • Users may use software available in the Computer Lab. No installation of any software on a Lab computer’s hard drive is permitted.

  • The only peripheral equipment you may attach to a computer is your personal headphones.

  • If a user violates any Library or Computer Lab policies the Library reserves the right to cancel and/or suspend use of the Computer Lab by that user.
  • The Library requires notification of cancellations at least 24 hours in advance. If a group hasn’t called or arrived within 30 minutes after its scheduled time, the Computer Lab will be opened to the public and the group may, therefore, be required to reschedule its event.
