Facilities: Using the AMBS Library

Computer Use Policy

Computers in the AMBS Library are for the benefit of the AMBS community. Members of the AMBS community are current students and employees as well as their spouses and children. Participants in programs of the Church Leadership Center may also use the AMBS Library computers. Others who wish to use the library’s computers must inquire at the library service desk.

  • The catalog search computers at the library entrance may be used by anyone to search the library catalog and to access other reference materials. Other uses are prohibited.
  • Student use of computers takes precedence over non-student use. Participants in Church Leadership Center programs and non-student members of the AMBS community may use the library’s computers as space is available.
  • Academic use of computers takes precedence over recreational use. Recreational use of computers includes, but is not limited to, playing games, non-academic instant messaging or e-mail correspondence, and web browsing not related to academic work.
  • All minors and adult children of students may use the library’s computers only under the direct supervision of a parent.
  • Viewing pornography, illegal music, video, and file sharing, and other illicit activities are prohibited.
