The primary function of the public workstations is to provide the widest possible access to bibliographic, full-text, and multimedia resources (online and offline). In addition to Internet access, Academic Stations, limited to UO students, faculty and staff, provide software for the creation or production of information or communication (word processing, Web publishing, etc.). Headphones are available at Library Reference desks for listening to audio on public workstations.

Non-academic use of Internet Only workstations is limited to 15 minutes. Non-UO public may be asked to give up a public workstation for UO students and staff doing academic work. To insure equitable access to computers and to all of the Library's electronic resources, library staff may discourage the use of activities such as email, games, chat rooms, etc.

Activity at the UO Libraries's public workstations must also comply with the UO Computing Center's "Acceptable Use of Computing Resources" guidelines.
