Access to Public Computers

  1. Policy Statement
    1. The primary mission of Drew University Library is to provide support for the academic pursuits of the Drew community of students, faculty and staff. The library  provides access to educational resources for the broader community to the extent it is able without affecting the services supplied to our primary constituencies. Non-affiliated users may be asked to vacate equipment if it is needed by University students, faculty and staff.
  2. Purpose
    1. This policy and associated procedures provide a framework for equitable and consistent management of on-premises equipment used to access electronic resources.
  3. Audience
    1. All members and approved visitors of the Drew community
  4. Guidance and Procedures
    1. Courtesy and common sense are expected in using all Library resources. No user has the right to monopolize equipment or resources to the exclusion of other legitimate users.

The priority ranking for access to equipment and resources is as follows:

  1. Educational use of sources available only in the library by Drew University students, faculty and staff, and use of federal and state resources by visitors. 
  2. Other educational use by Drew University students, faculty and staff.
  3. Other uses by Drew University students, faculty and staff.
  4. Educational use by visitors.
  1. Consequences of Violating this Policy
    1. The Library complies with all laws and University guidelines governing the behavior of the Drew Community and its guests. If members of the Drew Community feel that access to Internet resources is being used in a way that creates a hostile environment, they may address the matter through the mechanisms in place in the University (e.g., the Sexual Harassment Committee). The offending individual may be informed of the impact of his/her actions by either the offended user or the Library staff before formal action is taken. If the offending individual is not subject to University regulations, Public Safety may be called by Library staff (preferably by the Library Administration, if available) to escort the individual out of the Library.
  2. Related Information
    1. Drew University students, faculty and staff have priority over visitors in access to Library equipment and non-governmental resources. Educational use of resources by University students, faculty and staff has priority over other uses.
  3. Contact
    1. The Office of the University Library Director, Elizabeth Leonard, can address questions regarding this Policy: (973)-408-3322, and eleonard@drew.edu.
