Computer Resource and Internet Usage Policy

In the fulfillment of its mission to provide a comprehensive program which serves all segments of its community, Chapman Library provides public access to the Internet.

Guidelines for Internet Use:

1. Online computer terminals at Chapman Library are not to be used for e-mail, chat rooms or on-line games. The Library is an Information agency and its computers are essential for locating and using information resources on the campus online catalog and Internet.

2. No information can be downloaded from the Internet to the online computer terminals at this time; but information can be printed out on the Library printer.

3. You may not use your own software programs on the Internet access computers.

4. The computers should be used in a responsible manner. This means avoiding physical or other damage to the computer, not using it for illegal or commercial purposes, and, since it's located in a public area, not displaying on-screen explicit images. Misuse of the computer or Internet access will result in the loss of your computer privileges.

Objectionable Material.

Chapman Library does not physically monitor patrons' use of the Internet. NCCC has no control over information and images available through the Internet and cannot be held responsible for its contents. The Internet may contain information and images you consider objectionable, inappropriate or unreliable.

Minors Using the Internet:

Parent and guardians, not the library or its staff, are responsible for the Internet information selected and/or accessed by their children. Parents or guardians who wish to allow their children (under the age of 18) access to the Internet must sign the permission slip, located below, and return it to the library. Only students who have a signed form on file will be allowed to access the Internet without a parent or guardian present.
