• Library Computer Lab Survival Tips

  • Student’s Responsibility:

    Virus protection is provided on all the computers in the lab areas. Know where your flash drive has been. The intentional spreading of computer viruses is a crime. Mt. Hood Community College will pursue the imposition of disciplinary sanctions on students (consistent with local, state and federal law) up to and including expulsion and referral for prosecution for violations.

    NO food, drink, smoking, use of smokeless tobacco, or talking on cell phones allowed.


    Pay-for-print is available in open student computer areas. A credit card or debit card is needed to purchase printing or copying. Black and white printing costs 5 cents per side. Other options are available at other costs. Scanning is free but a Saints Print account login is needed to access the scan menu. No charge will be made against your card. ALLOW PLENTY OF TIME TO PRINT/COPY/SCAN YOUR DOCUMENTS FOR CLASS.

    Computer are for class related research and assignments only. Unauthorized use such as browsing adult sites will result in loss of lab privileges. There is no privacy – your lab activity can and will be monitored locally and remotely.

    Please be responsible in your use of the equipment at all times. Be gentle with the computers, especial the CD-ROM drives. The internal workings of all computer equipment are off limits. If questions arise regarding hardware, please consult a computer aide or your instructor.

    Please note the fire exits. In case of fire, leave the lab immediately. Do not attempt to disconnect electrical equipment or help fight the fire.

    Any unauthorized use of passwords, software or records, falsification of identity, as well as any violation of the confidentiality or security of passwords, software or file data, will be subject to disciplinary action, including suspension or expulsion.
