Eugene Public Library is committed to providing free and open access to informational, educational, recreational, and cultural resources for library users of all ages and backgrounds. The Library makes information available in a variety of formats, including print, audiovisual, and electronic resources.
The Eugene Public Library upholds and affirms the right of each individual to have access to constitutionally protected material. The Library also affirms the right and responsibility of parents to determine and monitor their own children’s use of library materials and resources; parents of minor children must assume responsibility for their children’s use of the Library’s electronic resources.
Users should be aware that the inappropriate use of electronic information resources can be a violation of local, state, and federal laws and can lead to prosecution. The user will be held responsible for his/her actions using the Internet or other electronic resources. Users are expected to abide by library policies, which include generally accepted rules of network etiquette. Unacceptable uses of the service will result in the suspension or revocation of Internet use privileges.
The Internet is a decentralized, unmoderated global network; the Eugene Public Library has no control over the content found there. The Library will not censor access to material nor protect users from offensive information, and it is not responsible for the availability and accuracy of information found on the Internet.
