Library Computer Use Policy
Santa Fe Community College Library
Computer Use Policy
SFCC Library provides computer and internet access in support of the research, information needs, and course related work of our students, staff, and faculty. On a limited basis, access to computers and the internet is offered to the public as a courtesy. However, SFCC students, staff, and faculty will always have first priority for computer usage.
Access by non-SFCC users is a privilege not a right. The SFCC Library computer use policy has been established to manage limited resources effectively and to protect the rights and privacy of our patrons.
1. SFCC library provides computers, Internet access, and access to library resources to SFCC students, staff, faculty, and the public at no charge.
2. Students are subject to the print restrictions established by the Office of Information Technology (OIT).
3. The library staff will be happy to help with computer issues if possible, but staff are not trained technicians and do not provide tutoring for computing needs and software use. Computer users may need to contact the OIT Help Desk or computer labs for more extensive assistance for non-library issues.
4. Community users will always be required to vacate computers for waiting SFCC students, staff, or faculty.
5. Community users will need to have library staff sign them on to a computer and are limited to 30 minutes. At the discretion of library staff, public users may be allowed more time if no other patrons are waiting.
1. Research, information, and course work purposes take priority over email, social networking and other non-college related computer uses. Any patron, including SFCC students, staff, and faculty, using the computers for purposes other than research, information, and course work may be asked to give up the computer for priority use by others.
2. Students using SFCC library computers must be in compliance with the SFCC student Code of Conduct, SFCC Social Media Policy, and the SFCC Computer Use Policy.
