TCC Library Mission & Policy

Overview

The Library takes confidentiality very seriously. This section outlines the rules and regulations the Library has in place for their personnel and patrons to follow to ensure the safety and security of everyone’s information.

Principles and Rules

Access to personal information is restricted to Library staff who need to conduct Library business. Personal information may never be used for commercial purposes and should not be disclosed to any third party except as required by law or to fulfill an individual’s service request. Personal information must only be kept the shortest amount of time necessary to complete transactions or to provide service. A patron’s library record may not be disclosed to any other parties without the express consent of the patron or in response to a lawfully issued subpoena, search warrant, or other court order. Law enforcement, other than TCC Police requesting confidential information should be referred directly to the Dean of Libraries and Knowledge Management or the appropriate college administrator if the Dean of Libraries and Knowledge Management is unavailable.

Internet and Computer Use

Community members may use the Library’s computers for up to one hour per day. Users must sign a guest login sheet before being logged on to a computer. Users under the age of 16 must be supervised by a parent or caregiver.

Priority is given to students completing assignments or other coursework. During times of heavy computer usage, patrons using computers for non‐school related work may be asked to relinquish their computer.

The Library must abide by state and federal laws and by TCC regulations. All users must follow the IT Compliance, Policies & Procedures located on the TCC website. In accordance with these laws, regulations, policies, and procedures, inappropriate use of Library computers includes but is not limited to:

  • Unlawful or malicious activities or for proprietary purposes
  • Copyright and licensing violations
  • Commercial activities and private enterprises
  • Activities that could cause congestion and disruption of networks and systems
  • Viewing pictures of an erotic or sexual nature when such images could be viewed by others who are offended by them
  • Vandalism and mischief that incapacitates, compromises, or destroys College resources
