Computer Use Procedure

Public workstations in the Joyner and Music Libraries are available for research, learning, scholarship and support of teaching.

  • All members of the ECU community will be given priority over non-ECU patrons in the use of public workstations for research and learning.
  • ECU students, faculty and staff will be required to use their PirateID and password to access the public workstations.
  • Designated public workstations and wireless network access will be available for community users and other non-ECU patrons. ECU is a federal and state documents depository, and as such provision will be made to access these materials.
  • Users 14 years of age and under must have a parent or guardian present to use public workstations. 
  • The use of a login for anyone but the individual to whom it was issued is prohibited.
  • All users of library public workstations are responsible for reading and adhering to the ECU Academic Computer Use Policy at and to the Academic Library Services Electronic Resources Use Guidelines.
  • If a patron is viewing patently obscene and offensive material on the computers, Joyner Library’s security guards will tell the patron that they cannot view such material on university computers or wireless network.  This is in accordance with ECU’s University Student and Employee Computer Policy and Academic Computer Policy. These policies, along with the North Carolina Statute 14-190.1, Obscene Literature & Exhibitions govern public viewing of obscene and offensive material.  Community patrons and ECU faculty, staff and students will be warned once to cease viewing the material.  A second violation will result in a one year ban for community patrons.  ECU students will be reported to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities.  ECU faculty and staff will be reported to Employee Relations in the Department of Human Resources.
