Acceptable Use of Techology

According to LSSC's Information Systems Resources policy, resources are expected to be used in a responsible, efficient, ethical, and legal manner in accordance with the mission of LSSC.

Although the libraries do not monitor or censor the use of computers, library patrons should understand that the open display of some materials may create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment for others. Library patrons should respect that others may not want to be inadvertently exposed to images they find offensive. Library staff reserve the right to mediate complaints about the display of material and enforce this policy.
