Public Access Computers

Because funding for public-access computers comes from student technology fees, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries must ensure that University students have priority use. As an institution partially funded with state dollars, the University Libraries also provides limited computer/Internet access as a courtesy to the general public. Internet access is widely available elsewhere in the Lincoln area, including the various branches of the Lincoln City Libraries.

All computer use must comply with the University of Nebraska's computer use policy. Violation of this policy can result in revocation of the user's card and possible intervention by university police.

Pet Policy

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln prohibits pets from University of Nebraska-Lincoln controlled buildings, except for dogs that have been trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. While on University controlled property:

  • dogs must be under full control (walking, standing or sitting quietly) by the person's side at all times.
  • dogs should not be wandering, jumping, barking or being disruptive in any way.
  • if someone nearby is allergic, the person with the dog will be asked to re-locate.
