Technology Use Policy

Approved by Library Board:   April 25, 2018                     Revised:

Oregon Trail Library District provides technology to the public. The District makes this service available as part of its mission to enrich the community by providing access to the power of information and imagination. In keeping with its value of intellectual freedom, the District provides unfiltered Internet access on most of its networks, with the exception of the computers designated for children's use. 

Choosing and Evaluating Sources

While the Internet enhances resources the District already provides, the District cannot control information available over the Internet and is not responsible for its content. Internet content could be inaccurate, incomplete, outdated, offensive, disturbing, or illegal.  Users are encouraged to evaluate the validity of information. Staff may be able to assist with locating appropriate resources, basic Internet use, and use of technology, but trained staff may not always be available. User guides and reference books are available. 

Access by Minors

The District upholds the right of each individual to access constitutionally protected material, it also restricts use of the Internet to children over the age of 10 (ten) unless accompanied by an adult 18 or over. The District also affirms the right and responsibility of parents and legal guardians to determine and monitor their own children's use of library resources and the Internet. 

Rules Governing Use

Library technology and Internet access are provided to meet the informational, educational, cultural, and recreational needs and interests of patrons. However, District prohibits the following:

           

                   Damaging, altering, or installing equipment, systems, or software;

                   We cannot and do not guarantee the speed of our services. We also cannot and do not guarantee uninterrupted services.

                   Displaying, printing, or sending any material that is obscene, libelous, defamatory, threatening, harassing, or otherwise illegal, as defined by relevant laws;

                   Deliberately downloading, installing, or creating any harmful programs.

                   Violating intellectual property laws or software licensing agreements.

                   Viewing material that could reasonably be considered pornography, as determined by District staff. 

In addition to violating this policy, many of the listed activities may violate local, state, or federal laws. 

In order to provide equitable access to technology, patrons may be asked to comply with signup and time limitations and other restrictions as deemed necessary by staff.

 

Because technology is located in public areas and the District serves people of all ages, what is displayed on screens is not confidential, and patrons should use discretion when choosing what to view.

 

Refusal to comply with these rules may result in loss of technology privileges, ejection from District property, or summoning of law enforcement, as determined by the Appropriate Library Use Policy.
