ARTICLE XII - INTERNET POLICY

Adopted
Revised 10/3/99
Revised 03/13/00

Section 1.
The Neuschafer Community Library provides free public access to the Internet and other electronic databases to the general public. It is expected and assumed by the library that patrons who access electronic information Will do so in a responsible and legal way. Electronic resources are provided to serve informational or educational needs in much the same way print resources are, and have been, traditionally provided by the library. Individuals who use these resourses are expected to abide by the accepted standards of electronic etiquette and the laws of the United States as they apply to copyright and privacy.

Section 2.
The Neuschafer Community Library assumes no responsibility or liability for the use of the Internet by anyone. All responsibility for a child's use of the Internet under the age of 18 rests with the parent, guardian or caregiver to determine what is appropriate for their child only. Children and young adults should have permission to use the Internet but it is up to the parent or guardian to notify the library of any restrictions that apply to their child or children. Just as the library has no control over the uses of print material by the public and because the library does not endorse any particular point of view with regard to print or audio/video materials, so too does the library not endorse material found on the Internet. The library accepts no responsibility for information on screens which may be inadvertently viewed by others.

Section 3.
The library may impose some restrictions, such as time limits or charges for printing or downloading to disk that are deemed appropriate for the use of the library's equipment. The staff reserves the right to monitor the use of the library's equipment. The staff reserves the right to monitor the use of the Internet workstations to ensure compliance with this policy and with the laws of the country. Staff may require users to remove themselves from the equipment if behavior is observed as being in conflict with the library's policy. Misuse, abuse, unauthorized use, illegal activities or unethical use of the Internet may result in suspension of Internet access and or library privileges and may result in a recommendation of prosecution for the violation of this policy.

Section 4. The library expects that persons who make use of the library's Internet access will agree to the following stipulations:

  • all resources will be used for educational or informational uses only and not for illegal, unethical or unauthorized purposes.
  • respecting the privacy of others using the available equipment in the library by not interfering with their use.
  • the privacy of others will be respected as it applies to the use of the data, files, passwords, and authorizations to information; no attempts will be made to damage or alter the software of any network or database, nor will there be any attempts to reconfigure the equipment or alter the setup of equipment or software on which information is found.
  • abiding by the laws of copyright and licensing of data.

The library's Board of Trustees reserves the right to enact any and all other rules that are deemed appropriate to ensure the responsible use of all electronic resources provided by the library.
