(Oct 30/08) Is it possible to limit the use of applications like facebook inthe library? This week I had to wait 10 mins to access a computer to print something for class. I dont think its fair that I have to wait to use the computers to do something school-related, when there are people on the computers who are clearly just wasting time. My friend says that things like facebook are banned from the computers in the library at her school. Is it possible to at least have a few computers that are used for printing only?

Library response:

We understand the frustration of having to wait for a computer to become available, especially at this time of year. However, we have made the decision to not block access to any websites in the interest of academic freedom. That is to say that some of our students/faculty members use sites like Facebook for academic purposes, so us limiting access to it would be unfair to those users. 

We do have some quick access stations in Mills that are useful for when you just want to print something. I might also recommend checking out one of our laptops from the Circulation desk.

Hope this helps!
