Library Computer Use Policy

General Policies Applied to All

Use of library computers is governed by Bradley University policies, federal and Illinois laws and regulations, and the following Cullom-Davis Library policies:

  • The Library endorses the Library Bill of Rights and the Freedom to Read statement of the American Library Association and, in doing so, does not practice censorship.
  • The Library does not monitor and has no control over the information accessed and cannot be held responsible for the content, quality, or accuracy of the information retrieved. No Internet sites are intentionally blocked.
  • The primary use of computers in the Library is to support learning and research.
  • No food and/or drink near computers.
  • Anything saved by users on computers is automatically removed when computers restart.
  • Laptop circulation policy

Public (Non-Bradley User) Computers Specific Policies

Some of the computers in the Library Reference area are also available for public use without requiring a BUnetID login. In addition to the above general policies, the following specific guidelines are to be followed:

  • Access to government publications, learning, and research has top priority. The Library reserves the right to accommodate users who have the highest priority activity first and to extend the time limit on a discretionary basis.
  • Recreational uses are not allowed.
  • Complaints about visits to Internet sites with offensive content, (pornography, graphic depictions of violence, etc.), will result in banned from the library.
