West Valley Mission Community College District students and employees have first priority on all public computers. Close to 70 public computers are located on the southeast side of the Library and throughout the Library near stacks and support pillars. Computer workstations provide access to the Internet, CDROM/DVDs, Microsoft Office Suite, and media players.
Library staff are not expected to provide technical computer support for email or any computer programs. Students requiring access to additional application programs should be directed to the Technology Center.
Personal headphones are allowed on computer workstations at the individual's own risk if damage to personal headphones should occur. Headphones are also available at the Check Out Desk to borrow for use on public computers and stationary AV equipment.
The Library staff makes no attempt to restrict access to any material in printed or visual form available on the Internet. Users should be aware that they may encounter materials that they may consider objectionable or offensive in nature. The Library does not assume responsibility for the contents of non-District web sites, but does encourage free inquiry of information resources as described in the West Valley-Mission Community College District's Policy on Academic Freedom (Board Policy Manual 4.9).
According to the District's "Computer and Technology Use" guidelines users are responsible for maintaining the following: 1) an environment in which access to all District computing resources are shared equitably among users, 2) an environment conducive to learning, 3) an environment free of illegal or malicious acts and 4) a secure environment. Refer to the web site for complete information on rights, privileges and responsibilities.
