What is the library’s policy regarding access to public computers and/or the Internet?

The Alameda County Law Library provides public computer and Internet access for the purpose of researching the law and preparing legal documents. Patrons wishing to use a Research Computer must sign-up for a Library Card/Computer Use Card. A patron may use their Library Card/Computer Use Card to access Research Computers for up to 2 hours/day. Additional time on Research Computers can be purchased in 1 hour increments for $5.00/hour.

 

In order to preserve the security and integrity of its computers and to ensure equitable access to computer resources for all patrons, the Library may place limitations on the time and manner in which these resources are used.

 

​Patrons may be asked to leave a computer:

 

  • If staff determines that the computer is not being used to conduct legal research or to draft legal documents.
  • In order to ensure equitable access to computer resources for all patrons.
