Current CSI students have first priority on using computers in the library. All current CSI students are assigned a username and password at the beginning of each semester which they can use to log in. Students are also assigned a CSI e-mail account. Each currently enrolled student has the option to print in black and white or in color.
The computers are primarily for student use. Visitors may use a computer up to 3 hours per day, if one is available (must be over 18 years of age). They must sign in and out at the front desk, and must yield the computer to students if another computer is not available. Black and white printing is charged at $.20 a page, color printing is charged at $1.00 a page. Children under the age of 18 cannot use CSI Library computers unless they are enrolled as students
All computer resources are the property of the College of Southern Idaho. Computer usage may be monitored by CSI computer support staff (this includes e-mail and Internet usage). All computer users must abide by rules set forth in the CSI Computer Use Policy. Library users must adhere to the provisions of state and federal copyright laws and regulations. Illegal or unauthorized access, display, performance, reproduction, duplication, distribution or modification of copyrighted materials is strictly prohibited. The person using the computer is liable for any infringement.
CSI Library Staff may give a CSI guest (who is at least eighteen years of age) temporary access to the Internet and Microsoft Office from one of the five visitor workstations in the library. Specific procedures are used to keep precise records of when guests use a guest workstation.
