Policies

Patron Conduct

We encourage students to bring beverages with secure lids and small snacks but meals should be consumed in the lobby of the building. Texting is encouraged as well but all calls should be taken in the lobby. This is a shared space so please be considerate of those working around you. Users who are disturbing others and ignore requests to correct behavior will be asked to leave the library.

 Computer Use

Desktop computers are available for student and public use any time the library is open. Laptops are also available to check out for up to four hours at a time by NIC students, and may be taken out of the library but not off campus. As Molstead Library has a limited number of seated computer work stations, preference will be given to NIC students who are using them for academic study purposes. In the event that all work stations are occupied, individuals using a library computer to play games, watch videos not related to class work, or for other non-academic related purposes will be asked to vacate the station.

Molstead Library also has two iMacs available for student use, and are reserved for student use only. Gaming and personal use are strictly prohibited on the iMac computers, and anyone seen doing so will be immediately asked to relocate to a PC station. Multiple infractions could result in loss of computer privileges. The library adheres to North Idaho College’s computer policy, as outlined in Article VI of the Student Handbook.
