Laptop Checkout and Use Policy

The primary mission of the Cornette Library is to provide access to information resources. As part of a comprehensive information network, the Cornette Library supports the curriculum of the University, the research of the faculty, and the development of student research skills to prepare them to cope with the demands of an information-based society.

The library provides access to knowledge as it is currently structured, and to emerging fields of knowledge. Technology plays an important role as an access tool and as a storage medium. Immediate, physical access to a strong core collection locally increasingly is enhanced by delivery of information from remote sources.

To this end, and in addition to the 20 public access desktop computers located in Reference and the 8 public desktops located in Government Documents and Periodicals, the Cornette Library has acquired 24 Latitude laptop computers, capable of web browsing and word processing (MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), which can be checked out by faculty, staff and students for use within the library.
