|Patron Usage Policy for Computing and Networking|
The Library supports free access to research materials and the use of computing technologies to identify, locate and use scholarly resources. Of necessity, this policy restricts library patrons to legal, appropriate and fair use of a limited number of Library computers, so that the UNCA community benefits from improved access and services.
Library computing and networking users must comply with the University of North Carolina at Asheville Computer Use Policies. Student usage is governed by the Student Usage Policy for Computing and Networking at http://www.unca.edu/policies/71.pdf.
Students, faculty, and staff with valid UNCA identification cards have priority over other users. Display your UNCA ID card in the holder provided. If a UNCA ID is not displayed, the assumption is that you do not have one.
The number of Internet access workstations is limited. The Library reserves the right to reclaim workstations being used for personal or recreational purposes, such as writing letters or surfing the World Wide Web, and to reassign them to patrons who need to identify or access research materials or complete coursework assignments.
Patron usage is limited to one hour per day at the Internet workstations. To reserve a time, sign-up in person on the provided form. Telephone and e-mail reservations are not accepted.
Patrons may use computing and networking technologies in the Library with the following restrictions:
