071.3 Academic Computing Equipment Usage


A. Background

The policy addresses the scheduling and use of equipment housed in university and departmental computing laboratories.


B. Policy

Information Technology Services is responsible for the scheduling, maintenance and supervision of computing hardware and software in the computing laboratories under its control. Several academic departments maintain their own computer laboratories and provide their own guidelines for usage.


C. Guidelines

Reservation and use of computing laboratories under the control of Information Technology Services is coordinated by the Director of Learning Technology Services. This equipment is for use by Furman University faculty and students. These laboratories may be designated as follows:


1.      Furman University computer laboratories may be used for class demonstrations.  When the rooms are not in use as classrooms, they will serve as open laboratories.  Hours for these laboratories are posted on the door of each laboratory.

     2.    All special requests must be approved by the Chief Information Officer.
