This procedure provides guidelines on who can use college computing facilities, and how to request the use of college computer equipment and Information Technology services.


Computer Use:

The college's Information Technology facilities and services are available for use by the following personnel and organizations:

  1. Lane Community College students and staff. The computer use must be related to Lane's instructional mission or administrative needs and will not be used to support personal or outside commercial activities.
  2. Outside organizations that have comparable data processing equipment and that are willing to reciprocate the use of equipment under written arrangement with the Chief Information Officer.
  3. Nonprofit organizations for which Lane grants the use of facilities as a community service project upon written approval by the president.
  4. Outside organizations or individuals that, due to the unique nature of the facilities or services or the fact that these facilities are the sole sources in the district, wish to use these facilities or services and pay a comparable commercial use rate. The Chief Information Officer approves these arrangements.

All other requests for use of data processing facilities and services are submitted in written form to the Chief Information Officer for review and approval.
