Content Issues

Addressing the Issues

Access to the internet’s World Wide Web enables the library to provide much valuable information beyond the confines of its own collection. The internet is, however, an unregulated medium with no guarantee of accuracy, completeness, currency or even truthfulness. Individual websites may also contain controversial, offensive and even illegal content. The library cannot be responsible for the content of internet information and the user is cautioned to be aware of internet limitations.

Use of Software

The library may use software to focus use of our internet terminals on sites and uses more in keeping with our educational mission and collection development policy. Users who find their searches blocked may ask for staff assistance with their information inquiry.

Adult User Access

Adult users may request unfiltered access or that blocking software be turned off for full access to constitutionally protected speech; however, all users should be aware that the accessing, display or printing of obscene or illegal content is prohibited. Chat room access is not supported on our equipment and email functionality is not guaranteed.
