The University prevents networked computer users from installing software on library machines. Additionally, if the network cable is pulled from the outlet, the connection is instantly disabled. Only Schreiner University computers may be plugged into campus network connections.
Schreiner Universitystaff, students, and faculty are provided with a login and password to access email and library resources.
Community patrons may use the designated computers in the Computer Commons area. Passwords are posted on the machine for immediate use.
Responsible Computing Policy
To maintain membership, all networked users must act responsibly. Respect for intellectual property, for privacy of individuals and of data, for integrity of equipment, and a general recognition of the rights of others are all of central importance and will inform all network activity.
Three failed attempts to log into a library computer will result in a locked account that will become usable again in 30 minutes. For assistance, ask at the Reference Desk. Library computers also time out when users forget to log off. These computers can be made usable again by restarting the computer with the power button.
Email access is available to students and community patrons via the web only. Access to Schreiner University email is available via a link on the Schreiner One home page.
Printing in black and white or color is available to all users via a login and password system.
