As a part of its mission, Durham Tech’s library strives to “provide access to varied materials, services, and equipment for students, faculty, and staff.” In keeping with this mission, the library offers public access to electronic resources available on the Internet and the World Wide Web.
According to Durham Technical Community College’s Appropriate Use of Computing Resources Policy, Durham Tech’s computers must be used for “instruction, research, learning, and administration only. Durham Tech’s computers are for Durham Tech’s use. They may not be used for outside business projects or personal activities.” All computer users, including both Durham Tech and public patrons, must abide by this policy.
Since the Internet is not subject to any regulation, it may provide information that is not accurate, complete, current, or legal. While the Internet contains a wealth of interesting and useful material, it also provides access to materials which some persons may find offensive or obscene. However, the Durham Tech library has no control over materials on the Internet and cannot be held responsible for its content. Please ask if you need assistance finding information online.
The following rules of use apply to all library patrons using our public and/or our lab computers. Anyone in violation of any of these rules may be asked to leave the library.
