Using Library Computers

Nichols Library welcomes students, faculty, staff, and the public to use its facility to further their knowledge, education and research. The primary purpose of the public access computers is to obtain information. All users of Nichols Library assume responsibility for using the computers in an ethical and legal manner in accordance with University policies and state and federal laws.

The computers are provided primarily for library-related activities: library catalog access, databases, websites, etc. The computers may also be used for research and to write papers.
