Members may book a computer in our library service, subject to availability and agreement of the following Terms and Conditions:
Internet Access Terms & Conditions
Internet access is supplied by the library on the following terms and conditions. By using the library’s Internet access service, users agree to these terms and conditions.
The library does not control the content of the material which may be accessed by library users. The library makes no warranty with respect to the legality, suitability, accuracy, currency or completeness of any material available on the Internet. Users must make their own assessment of available material.
Where a user is under the age of 18 years, supervision or restriction of a child’s access to the Internet is the responsibility of the parent/guardian/carer. Some material available on the Internet is unsuitable for minors. The library is not responsible for restricting available content or supervising Internet use.
Users must not access or display any material which could be considered offensive. Library staff have absolute authority to end an Internet session immediately if offensive or inappropriate material is displayed.
Much of the material (including software) available on the Internet is copyright. Users must not breach copyright in material available on the Internet. A copyright owner is entitled to take legal action against a user who infringes his or her copyright. Unless otherwise permitted by the Copyright Act 1968, unauthorised copying of a work in which copyright subsists (including digital copying) may infringe the copyright in that work.
- Total amount of time available to individual users per day. Currently a total of 75 minutes per day of bookable time is offered subject to availability. Please refer any queries regarding availability to staff.
- Maximum download size of files from the internet may be restricted to limit impacts on other users sharing the network.
- Installation or execution of user software by users on public computers is not permitted soas to maintain a consistent environment for all users, and protect all parties from license breaches.
By using the library Internet access service, users release and discharge Logan City Council from any liability which might arise from the use of the service including liability in relation to defamatory or offensive material or any breach of copyright which may occur as a result of use. Logan City Council is not liable for the security of any information stored on the public library computers or for information transmitted over the library’s internet connection.
Users should exercise caution in conducting personal or business transactions on public computers and via the internet connection. Users should be aware that personal documents or information created or accessed during a computer session may be stored on public computer hard drives. Software which removes such information after a computer is restarted has been installed.
Users are required to display appropriate behaviour whilst using computer workstations. Please limit noise by talking quietly.
A Copyright owner is entitled to take legal action against a person who infringes his or her copyright. Unless otherwise permitted by the Copyright Act 1968, unauthorised copying of a work in which copyright subsists may infringe the copyright in that work.
Where making a copy of a work is a fair dealing under section 40 of the Copyright Act 1968, making that copy is not an infringement of the copyright in the work.
It is a fair dealing to make a copy, for the purposes of research or study, of one or more articles on the same subject matter in a periodical publication or, in the case of any other work, of a reasonable portion of the work. In the case of a published work that is of not less than 10 pages and is not an artistic work, 10% of the total number of pages, or one chapter, is a reasonable portion.
More extensive copying may constitute fair dealing for the purpose of research or study. To determine whether it does, it is necessary to have regard to the criteria set out in sub-section 40 (2) of the Copyright Act 1968.
