Bottom line, I am trying to determine what type of Internet/PC use policies are out there in academic libraries, particularly in relation to multi-use/multi-user media lab PCs. Our facility is open to the general public as well as for student and faculty instructional support.
We are not seeking to become the PC or Internet police. We have avoided things like time limits or special log in requirements. But we may need to look at the wording of our use policies to take into consideration priority use by students for course related work. I may have just responded to my on query, but I would be really interested to know what type of policies are out there in academic libraries, and how these policies are conveyed and supported.
