Wireless Internet Access Policy
Free wireless Internet access is available at Calvert Library. Customers will obtain a user name and password from library staff.
Customers need a notebook/laptop computer or other wireless device with 802.11b or 802.11g wireless networking.
If you are not sure if your notebook/laptop computer or other device has this functionality, please check with the manufacturer or supplier of your equipment. If your notebook/laptop computer or other device does not include wireless networking, you may be able to purchase a variety of external notebook/laptop pc cards and USB devices. The manufacturer or supplier of your equipment, or local technology merchants can help you find the right product for your notebook/laptop computer or other device.
We have tried to make wireless access as available as possible in our library, but customers may encounter some "dead" spots where wireless reception may be limited. If you have trouble accessing the Internet or staying online, please move to a different location within the library.
Wireless internet access is filtered. By choosing to use this free service, you agree to abide by Calvert Library’s Computer Use Policy and Internet Safety Policy.
The wireless network is not secure. Information sent to and from your notebook/laptop computer or other wireless device may be captured by anyone else with a wireless device and the appropriate software.
Library staff is not able to provide technical assistance and there is no guarantee that you will be able to make a wireless connection.
The Library assumes no responsibility for the safety of equipment or for notebook/laptop computer or other wireless device configurations, security, or data files resulting from connection to the Library’s wireless access.
