As part of our participation in the U.S. Federal Depository Library we are required to provide the broader community with access to Federal Depository Library Program Electronic Collections.
For requirements see:
Depository Library Public Service Guidelines for Government Information in Electronic Formats:
FDLP Internet Use Policy Guidelines:
Over twenty stand up workstations, throughout the library, are available to all library users and require no log in. In the GPML reference area there are no stand up workstations. A GPML staff member will provide community access to government information by logging individual users on to the needed GPML workstation. GPML staff will type in the logon number, which will not be given to users.
1. Available hours?
Community logon for use of government information will be available when the GPML Reference Desk is staffed AND the library building is open to community users.
2. How will community users request logo?
Community users wishing to use government information via GPML area computers will make their request at the GPML Reference Desk during GPML Reference Desk hours.
3. What GPML computers are available for guest logon?
There are seven sit down public workstations in the GPML area. Because not all PCs in GPML have the same software, a GPML staff member will identify the appropriate PC for each community user’s work.
4. Once logged on community users have completed use of the government information resources, can they go on to non-government information at that workstation?
The purpose of GPML staff logon for community users is for use of government information. GPML staff may direct community users to the library’s standup workstations when their use of government information is completed.
