Security policies

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 computers may be plugged into campus network connections.

The exception to this policy extends along the windowed sides of the library where there are wired connections (ports) that you may utilize with your own LAN cable (student access only).

Schreiner staff, students and faculty are provided with a login and password to access email and library resources.

Community patrons may use designated computers (4 located near the Reference desk). Passwords are posted on the machine for immediate use.

Locked Accounts/Computers

Three failed attempts to login to 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 logoff. These computers can be made usable again by restarting the computer with the power button.

Email Access

Email access is available to students and community patrons via the web only. Access to Schreiner email is available via a link on the Library's home page.


Printing in black and white or color is available to all users via a login and password system. A library printer (printer name:"library black and white aristapus") must be selected before printing anything or the printouts will come out in the computer lab in Dickey Hall.

Wireless Internet Access

The campus wireless network (provided by Apogee) is available to the Schreiner community. The library has a number of laptops available at the Circulation/Reserve Desk for checkout to Schreiner students. Wireless internet is only available to Schreiner Students, Faculty, and Staff.

Available Library Computers and Equipment

The Library has approximately 50 computers with Internet access available for student and community use. Resources such as the Library's web catalog, article and citation databases, and dozens of informational web pages are accessible through the Library's web site.

Computers are located in four areas of the building.
