Library Policies

A guide outlining basic resource and usage policies for Musselman Library.

Computer Use Policy

Musselman Library provides computing resources in support of Bluffton University’s academic programs.

  • Bluffton students, faculty, and staff are primary users of computer workstations and will be given priority for use.
  • Community patrons, alumni, high school students, and guests of the library may use library computers for educational and research purposes when these workstations are not needed by our primary users.
  • Grade school and middle school students may use library computers ONLY when accompanied by parent/guardian or when granted permission for limited time educational use. Please stop by the Circulation/Info desk and ask to speak with a librarian.
  • ALL users of library computers are expected to follow campus-wide policies for responsible use and guidelines appropriate to Bluffton's community of respect.

"Authorized users agree to use the Bluffton network in accordance with the Bluffton standards for campus conduct and to abide by all relevant academic standards and laws with respect to copyright and the responsible use of network and Internet resources.”  From: https://www.bluffton.edu/studentlife/handbook/standards/#computing

Questions about computer use?  Feel free to stop at the Circulation/Info desk anytime to ask for a librarian, or contact Research Help from the library website with any questions or concerns.
