Changes to Public Workstation Access

| 1 Comment

Hello everyone,

Just a friendly reminder that over the summer we have implemented new public workstation access for the computers in Magrath. As an overview, our "regulars," community members WITHOUT a Friends of the Library (FoL) account will have 2 hours of internet access per day throughout the University Libraries; the two hour limit will re-set at midnight the following evening. There are in-depth Terms of Use and FAQ sheets in the filing cabinet by the Circ printer, so if the patron asks for more information you are welcome to give them those printouts! (Please let us know when we're running low so we can make more copies.)

Here's what these changes will mean for you, as Circulation Student Workers:

  • You may have to create new patron cards using CybraryN. Either Nick, Perry, or I will train you as to how to do this, and there is a cheat sheet right by the Circ 1 computer.

  • You may get patrons who are upset about these changes. Please come get a full-time staff person to deal with incensed patrons - there's no need for you to do so on your own.

  • If the patron wants more than 2 hours of internet access per day, they can purchase a Friends of the Library account for $80/year (individual) by visiting the Friends of the Libraries office in Wilson.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask one of the full-time staff members! As always, we're more than happy to help.
