Guidelines for the Use of Library Computers

Library workstations are intended for library research purposes, and are subject to all provisions of the ISU Code of Computer Ethics and Acceptable Use. Violators are subject to removal from the Library and appropriate University sanctions.

Please refrain from playing games on Library workstations.

Material of a sexually explicit nature can be considered intimidating, demeaning, hostile, or offensive to others. Therefore, displaying such material in public is in violation of ISU's Discrimination and Harassment policy. Violators may be subject to disciplinary action as described in the Student Handbook and applicable faculty and staff handbooks.

Conduct disruptive to the concentration of others is not allowed and is in violation of the ISU Library's Noise Policy. This includes the playing of audio files from computers and/or portable devices that can be heard by others. Anyone causing a disturbance will be asked to leave.

Food and drink are not allowed in areas housing public computers. These include the central computer cluster in the Parks Library lobby, the User Education Lab (room 32), the 134 Classroom, and the Media Center (room 2).

If you experience problems with someone who is not following these guidelines, please contact staff at a library service desk.
