Community user computer policy

  • The Duggan Library provides two dedicated computers with Internet, CD, and DVD access for our community patrons and guests to the College. These computers are located by the Circulation Desk. Users should see a library staff member at the Circulation Desk in order to sign Computer User Policy before proceeding.

  • Computers by the reference desk and in the computer lab are for use by Hanover College students, faculty, and staff only.

  • Computers are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and use is limited to thirty minutes.

  • If no one is waiting to use the computer, a community patron may continue to use the computer in additional thirty minute increments up to a maximum of two hours of continuous use.

  • Patrons must download any lawful material to their own disks. No downloads to the computer hard drive or changes to the computer's configuration are permissible.

  • To print, please see a library staff member at the Circulation Desk.

  • Any unlawful or malicious activity will result in loss of computer privileges.

  • Community patrons under the age of sixteen (16) will need to have a parental/legal guardian signature on file before using library computers (see below) unless seeking access to government documents in which case they should see library staff for assistance.
