All uses of library computers are expect to adhere to the Technology Usage Policy outlined in the C-Book:

Access to computing resources and networks that are owned or operated by the university imposes certain responsibilities and obligations, and is granted subject to university policies and applicable laws.

Appropriate use is always ethical, reflects academic honesty, and shows restraint in the consumption of shared resources. It demonstrates respect for intellectual property, ownership of data, system security mechanisms, and individuals’ rights to privacy and to freedom from intimidation and harassment. Users are responsible for taking appropriate precautions to reduce their risk of downloading viruses or other potentially harmful software. The university is not responsible for any virus infection that is the result of accessing the Internet using university networks.

Users who access the university network using a privately-owned computer system or mobile device are responsible for adhering to the university Technology Usage Policies. This applies whether the user connects to the network directly, via a virtual private network, and/or through cloud services.

Any individual who violates the Technology Usage Policies will be subject to disciplinary action. Disciplinary procedures applicable to students are found in Volume VI. Disciplinary procedures applicable to faculty are found in Volume IV. Disciplinary procedures applicable to administrators and staff are found in Volume V

3D printing in the Creation Station

The Creation Station in Jennings Library contains a 3D printer and two 3D scanners. You can send files to the library to be 3D printed by Creation Station staff, have an object scanned in the library, or check out the iSense handheld scanner to scan an object yourself and then send it to the library to be printed.
