Internet and local network systems, including computer equipment, software, storage media, web browsing, instant messaging, telephone and voicemail systems are Library District property and are to be used for business purposes. All data stored on Library District computers is also considered Library District property. Because the Library District is a public organization, data stored on Library District computers is subject to public review under the Colorado Open Records Act.

Scope: This policy applies to employees, contractors, volunteers, temporary employees and other workers at the Arapahoe Library District, including all personnel affiliated with third parties. These rules are in place to protect the Arapahoe Library District and its employees. Inappropriate use exposes the Library District to risks including virus attacks, compromise of network systems and services, and legal issues.
