Effective October 1, 2014, all OSL library card holders are required to use their library card when using the public access Internet computers. OSL library card holders are allowed a maximum of 2 (two) hours access to the public access computers per day.

In-state residents who do not have a card, or out-of-state residents willing to pay the out-of-state fee for an OSL card may register for a library card that day at any of the public services desks, providing they show proper ID. (Check with the circulation desk for information on what forms of ID are accepted).

Temporary passes, not to exceed 1 (one) hour per day, may be given to library users who do not qualify for an OSL library card (e.g. out-of-state visitors). OSL library card holders will not be given temporary passes.

In some unusual circumstances where more than 2 hours are needed on the Internet computers (e.g. the taking of an exam online), library staff may extend the time limit on the public access Internet computers.

The enforcement of these time limits is necessary to ensure that fair access to the limited resource of public Internet computers is available to all library users.
