All guest log-ins for the computers in the Information Commons in the William H. Hannon Library (1st floor) will expire at the end of day on Saturday, November 29. We turn off these guest log-ins to allow our students maximum access to our computers as they prepare for finals.
On Monday, December 15, 2014, the William H. Hannon Library will institute a new policy on guest computer log-ins in the Information Commons. In an effort to insure that our students have ample access to computers in the library, from that date forward we will be issuing guest log-ins for our computers only to individuals who fall into one or more of these categories:
- Resident of these three area codes: 90045, 90094, or 90293 (proof of address required)
- Students, faculty, and staff of Loyola Law School (current ID required)
- An alumnus or alumna of Loyola Marymount University (OneCard required)
- A student, faculty, or staff member from another college/university (current school ID required)
- A student, faculty, or staff member from one of schools in the LMU Family of Schools (current school ID required)
- Anyone with a borrower’s card, including spouses and children of LMU faculty and staff and students from high schools that have a borrowing contract with the LMU library
Guests in the above categories should visit the Information Commons service desk to request or renew their guest account after December 15. All visitors may use the stand-up computers located around the library that do not require log-ins; use of these computers is limited to 15 minutes at a time.
The library's public computers are primarily intended to serve as a gateway to the library's information resources, such as the online catalog, resources owned by LMU, and licensed electronic databases. Guests are prohibited from using these computers for recreational, commercial, or profit-making purposes. This has always been our policy, but we will begin enforcing it more rigorously on December 15.
The new computer access policy will not affect use of guest wireless nor public access to the building. It will remain open to all visitors.
For those affected by this change in policy, we recommend the following branches of the Los Angeles Public Library as alternative locations for computer and internet access:
