The computers in the public areas of Buley Library have been provided to support the educational and research mission of Southern Connecticut State University.
Computer use is covered by the SCSU and CSU computer use and security policies:
The Internet offers access to a vast amount of information beyond the walls of Buley Library. Buley Library accepts no responsibility for the quality of the information found by the searcher. The Internet is unregulated, and you may find erroneous or objectionable material. Users must be aware of the wide range of validity or accuracy, timeliness and general usefulness of information. It is wise to check dates information was posted, and the source of the listing as far as that is possible.
Buley Library adheres to the tenets of the American Library Association’s document, The Library Bill of Rights.
The library does not attempt to censor access to web sites, but expects patrons to search only for material pertinent to academic research.
All Internet users should possess Internet searching skills as librarians do not give extensive help in searching. SCSU community members should contact the Academic Computing Center (392-6444) for information about Internet classes.
The availability of the Internet sites selected by Buley librarians (found through Buley Library’s Research Guides page) cannot be guaranteed because of the changing nature of the Internet.
All of the general computer use policies applying to CSU and Buley Library computers apply to Internet access.
Buley Library welcomes community and guest users. Guests may be eligible for the Guest Borrower Program to check out books. There are 2 guest workstations available by the Reference Desk.
SCSU alumni may be eligible for regular network access. Please contact the Alumni Office and the OIT Helpdesk. Contractors, visiting scholars, and other official guests of the university may be eligible for guest network access. Please contact your university sponsor or employer.
Printing from the computers on the 1st and 2nd floors of the library is the same as printing in the labs. There are no printers on the 2nd floor. There are both black & white printers (default, double-sided) and color printers on the 1st floor. There is a HootLoot card machine on the 1st floor for adding money (cash only, $1, 5, 10, or 20) to your HootLoot/Campus ID card.
There is no Guest printing. Guests are encouraged to bring USB drives or email materials for printing elsewhere.
Note: the Computer Lab on the 4th floor may close before the building closes.
