INTERNET USE POLICY

The Navarro College Library provides computer and internet access to further the goals set forth in the library’s mission statement.

 

The library expects that all use of online resources will be responsible, ethical, and consistent with the purposes for which these resources are provided as set forth in the library’s mission statement.

 

Furthermore, library patrons are expected to use online resources in a manner which is consistent with the library’s goal of maintaining an environment conducive to study and academic pursuits. Consequently, patrons are expected to avoid viewing images that might reasonably be considered by others to be objectionable.

 

Time limits may be placed on computer use in order to provide access to as many users as possible. Misuse or abuse of library computers or internet access may result in suspension of library privileges.
