Rotherham Libraries & Neighbourhood Hubs ICT Acceptable Use Policy 2023


Rotherham Libraries & Neighbourhood Hubs provides access to computers and the internet to support the educational, recreational and cultural needs of the community.  Library members can use the internet to access a range of online resources, including Find My Past and Ancestry.

These services are provided free of charge for customers although there are charges for printing.

If you use the Rotherham Library Network public access computers you must abide by the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP), as outlined below.  

Libraries & Neighbourhood Hubs will not deny legitimate access to information by any member of the public but recognises that access to electronic resources may be open to misuse and abuse. This policy has been produced in order to protect the interests of the Service and the community it serves. Failure to comply with the AUP’s terms and conditions may result in the use of the IT facilities being suspended, withdrawn; or may lead to prosecution. 

Any user who does not agree to these terms and conditions should immediately stop using the IT facilities and notify library staff so that their membership rights can be amended.  This will not affect access to other Services.
