Scott Memorial Library Computer Use Policy

Computers in Scott Memorial Library and the Computer Classrooms are connected to the TJU Academic and Research Network (ARN). All computers require user authentication using a Jefferson Campus Key (assigned by IS&T) or a guest pass issued by a member of the Scott Library staff. Information Services staff can assist new students, faculty and staff with their Campus Keys at the 2nd floor Reference Desk. Members of the public may purchase a 1-day computer guest pass for $7 at the 2nd floor Circulation Window.

Once authenticated, users have full, unrestricted access to:

  • Internet sites and Web searching
  • Email
  • Jefferson LMS (Canvas)
  • Microsoft Office applications (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.)
  • In the Computer Classrooms: Software applications for computer-based learning, informatics, clinical decision-making, graduate medical education, statistics, graphic/text scanning, and word processing.

Jefferson has an official policy about the use of computers, email, and other forms of electronic communication, which applies to all students, faculty and staff. Please read the policy so you will be aware of your rights and obligations as a computer user. (Note: The policy is only viewable from computers on the campus network.)

Please note: Library connections are dedicated to the equipment installed. If you attempt to connect a laptop to a hardwired connection, it will disable the connection.

The Library's computers are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Laptops are available for checkout from the Scott Service Desk.
