Access to the Internet on Library Computers

Introduction

All branches of the Dayton Metro Library offer public access to the Internet through a project called OPLIN. Through OPLIN we are able to offer free access to a number of premium database and information services including the full text of magazine and newspaper articles, encyclopedias, atlases and other reference materials. Due to licensing restrictions access to some of these premium resources is only available from computers located in the library.

Access to the Internet from machines located in the library is free although there will be a charge for printing. Time limits may also be imposed if demand warrants.

Before using library computers to access the Internet, please read the following documents. Printed copies are available in the help packets we have prepared for you. Parents of children and young adults are particularly encouraged to read documents we have prepared for you.
