Rules & Conduct

  • The Info Arcade computers are primarily for student use to complete assignments. Limit your time to 30 minutes if others are waiting, and refrain from recreational use. The computer stations near the coffee shop are suitable for browsing needs.
  • Be considerate of others.
  • You will not be able to install software on the computers. This includes software bundled with textbooks or downloaded from class websites. Check the software available, because many of the primary software needs have already been met. If there is software absolutely needed for a class but is not offered in one of the labs (not just the info arcade), then have your professor contact the library.
  • No Food. No Drinks. No Tobacco Products (including smokeless).
  • The Info Arcade is not a quiet study area, but refrain from using cell phones or having loud or extended discussions. Headphones are not provided, but you can bring your own or check out a pair from the front desk. If others can hear what you hear through your headphones, that is too loud and you will be asked to turn it down.
  • Do not abuse the equipment.
  • Any illegal activity (from p2p downloads to surfing questionable sites) will be associated with your account and you will be held responsible. Do not share your account information because this is still held against you.
  • It is your responsibility to the know the copyright status for any materials printed or copied. By using those services, you assert that you have the right to do so.

Guest Accounts

If you are guest, we offer a guest account at the cost of $5 per day, or $50 per three months (for $75, can be upgraded to include circulation rights). Bring a Photo ID to the User Services desk if you would like to purchase one. You may not transfer your guest account to another user. It will be associated with your name and all activity on it will be your responsibility. 

For Lifetime Learners, local high-school users, and others, there are discounted plans for obtaining a card. The above link provides more details.
