Library Computer and Internet Use Guidelines

The Library has an obligation to maintain a welcoming, comfortable, safe, and harassment-free environment for library patrons and university employees. Usage of library computers must support such an environment.

The James C. Kirkpatrick Library complies with all UCM policies and regulations, including the following:

In addition to university policies, the following expectations concerning computer and internet use apply:

  • In keeping with the spirit of UCM’s values, we expect library users to be guided by courtesy, sensitivity, and respect for others when accessing and viewing Internet material and using library computers in general.
  • Users may not maliciously access, alter, damage, or destroy any computer system, network, program, or data.
  • Computers may not be used for commercial purposes or in violation of state or federal laws or applicable university policies.
  • Every effort is made to keep the computer workstations and printers updated and in good working condition. The Library, however, is not responsible for equipment failures and network outages that result in lost data and uncompleted work. The Library is not responsible for any personal information transmitted by computer users over Library networks, including passwords and other personal identifiers.
  • Users should observe applicable intellectual property laws, including United States copyright laws.
  • Users must adhere to electronic resource licenses, agreements, and guidelines, including those limiting or prohibiting systematic download, duplication, transfer, sale, or commercial exploitation.
  • Computers are intended for research, scholarship, and other academic work.
  • While the James C. Kirkpatrick Library supports open access to the Internet, employees may ask a public access computer user to vacate a computer for the following reasons:
    • Priority is given to those using government resources
    • A 30-minute time limit may be imposed when others are waiting
    • Use of computers for chat room messaging, social media communications, games, and commerce is not permitted
  • Please see the James C. Kirkpatrick Library Patron Behavior Guidelines for additional information.

Off-Campus Database Access with Single Sign On (SSO)

Most (but not all) library databases are available off-campus. To use library databases, patrons must either use a computer on the UCM campus or enter their UCM network username and password.

Single Sign On

To access library resources from off campus locations, you will be prompted to authenticate yourself as someone affiliated with UCM. Once you have entered your Single Sign On (SSO) credentials, the same as accessing Blackboard or email, you will land on the resource page, such as a database search page or individual article/chapter.

Contact the Technology Support Center

If all efforts to log in fail, contact the Technology Support Center at 660-543-4357 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week).   Email inquiries may be sent to  Walk-in help is available in Ward Edwards 0800 from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday, and weekends by appointment (hours vary for summer sessions and breaks).  More information regarding Technical Support is available online at

Can't Get to Login Screen?

You're most likely behind a firewall that blocks the ports needed to use the proxy server. This is very common in public K-12 schools. In order to use library resources, the network administrator will need to open up ports 2048 through 2648.
