As a global network, the scope of information found on the Internet is wide and diverse.
The Lewis J. Ort Library supports free and open access to all forms of information and does not attempt to monitor, filter, or censor the use of any of these resources. In support of our patrons' First Amendment right to freely seek and examine a broad range of opinions and ideas, the Library adheres to the following American Library Association statements on access to information:
The Library provides secure wireless network access throughout all public areas of the building. FSU students, faculty, and staff must use their University username and password to access the wireless network. Guests of FSU may connect to the 'fsuguest' network with limited access to the Internet by calling the FSU Helpdesk for a temporary guest username and password.
Please visit the Frostburg State University Office of Information Technology [http://www.frostburg.edu/computing/helpdesk.htm ] site for more information about the wireless network in the Library and on campus, including connection instructions.
Two flatbed color scanners are available on Floor 2 of the Library for use by FSU students, faculty, and staff. Users must use their FSU username and password to access the computer that is connected to the scanners. The scanners may be used to save digitized images of Library and other materials for personal academic coursework or research purposes only. The scanners may not be used to scan objects that could scratch the glass. Scanner users are responsible for following University computing policies as well as federal copyright law. Persons using the scanners are liable for any infringement.
Printing is not available at the scanner workstations. Images may be saved by the user to peripheral media (USB flash drive, CD/DVD, disk, etc) or to his/her campus network storage (H: Drive).
