Just a Reminder...

The semester is slowly winding down, and people are busy finishing papers and studying for upcoming exams. The library is filled to the brim; most seats are taken during the day, and the computers are constantly in use.

A previous post outlined the library's computer policy and to whom priority is given when people are waiting. We feel it is important to restate the policy here.

According to the library's Policies and Services Web page, the following groups are given priority (in this order) when computers are in demand:
  • Currently-enrolled students, faculty and staff using the computer for research or coursework;
  • Currently-enrolled students, faculty and staff using the computer for research not relating to coursework;
  • Community members using the computer for research.
If all the computers are busy, keep in mind that you do have options. You may always check out a laptop (for use in the library); the laptops print to Xerox #2. If you're in a hurry (and don't want to wait for a laptop to boot up), consider going to the Academic Computer Lab in Rm. 832 (located in the technology wing). If you want to contact us about the computers, we suggest you use the chat feature to the right of this post. Remember, we don't monitor students' computer use (due to privacy and staffing concerns); however, when notified, we will request that those using the computers for work other than coursework move and make way for those waiting.

We have more students than ever here at PVCC; resources are in high demand. We can work together to ensure that everyone uses those resources properly. And as always, please let us know if you have any questions.
