Technology Policy for family members who use computers in the Library: Individuals, who are not employed by Cottey, and who use Library computers are required to sign the policy in person and to sign in each time they enter the building. Normally, a child under 10 years must be accompanied by a parent. Cottey employees’ children who are under the age of 10 may be allowed in the Library if the parent is on campus. The decision about this privilege will be made on a “case-by-case” basis and may be revoked, depending on the child’s behavior while in the Library.
