Library Policies

Computer Use Policy

The CSI Library provides access to computers for the purpose of conducting online research and accessing the library’s electronic resources.

Given the limited number of workstations available, priority is given to students conducting library research or working on course-related assignments. Students who wish to simply surf the web, check their e-mail, or play videogames are strongly encouraged to use the facilities at the campus Computer LabsCybercafe (IL), or Campus Center (1C).

In order to access any computer on campus, including those in the library, students need a computer user ID and password from the Office of Information Technology (OIT). If you forget your computer login password, go to the OIT helpdesk on first floor of the Library in front of 1L-109A or call 718.982.3695. For more information on accessing campus computers, see Laboratory Login Procedures.

Students and faculty from other CUNY schools, CSI Alumni, and students from Empire State College who wish to use a computer must bring a valid ID to the OIT office in 2A-306D to request a guest computer login for each visit. Please refer to the OIT website for their office hours.
