  1. Pursuant to Federal Law (CALEA), all Users who wish to have access to public computers in the Library must register at the User Services Desk in order to obtain the required login ID and password. This registration requires the presentation of a current, valid picture ID, a current address, email address, and telephone number. Users may not share registration information or violate the registration process. Users must not infringe upon the rights or privacy of others or the integrity of the Library/University computer system and Users must abide by Library, UAH Campus, and AREN policies regarding the use of the Internet for academic and personal research. 

  1. A User is expected to exercise reasonable care to protect and safeguard all Library resources that are checked-out to the User. Checked-out resources shall be returned within the period prescribed, and, for any late returns, the User shall promptly pay all fines and fees imposed by the Library for failure to return resources when due. If a resource is lost or damaged, a User shall be obligated to pay the Library a reasonable fee for the repair or replacement of the resource. The User shall be further obligated to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the Library, including specifically those charges paid for the services of a collection agency or attorney, in collecting or attempting to collect such fines and fees.

  2. The Library has the right to terminate a User’s privileges if a User fails to comply with obligations set forth in this document or in other University policies, if a User furnishes false personal information in connection with the obtaining of a User Card, or if the University determines that termination is in the best interest of the Library.
