Here are some tips you can use to protect your privacy and personal information while using library computers:
· When using catalog and research computers in the library, be sure to log out and close your web browser window.
· If you use a library Internet PC, never leave yourself logged in when you leave. Be sure to end your PC Reservation session, which will restart the computer and wipe your personal information. Ask library staff for assistance if needed.
