CONDITIONS OF USE

FOR

LIBRARY PUBLIC ACCESS COMPUTERS

 Updated August, 2010


All persons using Library Public Access Computers must comply with the policies stated in the Roosevelt University Computer and Network Usage Policy. This document also allows the Library to define local "conditions of use".  The Library would like to provide as free and open access to its computers as possible.  However, certain restrictions will apply from time to time.  These restrictions include, but are not limited to, the following:

WHO MAY USE LIBRARY PUBLIC ACCESS COMPUTERS?

Priority will be given to current students, faculty, administrators and staff of any I-SHARE institution; members of the Alumni Association; and students and faculty from Jones Magnet School. Valid ID cards must be displayed while using computers.

Members of the public are asked to register at the Reference Desk and will be assigned a computer, if available. A time limit of 15 minutes per day applies to ensure access by registered students, faculty and staff. A photo ID must be presented at the Reference Desk when registering.

FOR WHAT PURPOSES MAY THE LIBRARY PUBLIC ACCESS COMPUTERS BE USED?

The Library’s computers are primarily for the scholarly communication and research needs of Roosevelt University and I-SHARE faculty, students and staff. Social and cultural communication is also recognized as an essential component of our communities.  Members of the public may also use the computers for their research and communication needs subject to the limitations stated above. The Library does not monitor or otherwise interfere with or censor use of the computers with regard to the content being accessed.

The Library’s public access computers may not be used for commercial purposes.
