Ferris Library for Information, Technology, and Education

Unaccompanied Minors in FLITE

The Ferris Library for Information, Technology & Education (FLITE) is oriented toward the students, faculty and staff of Ferris State University. We cannot guarantee the safety or protection of unescorted children in the building.

All children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult while in FLITE. Unescorted children will be required to rejoin a parent or caregiver. If a parent or guardian cannot be located, the university department of public safety will be contacted. When appropriate, exceptions may be made at the discretion of library personnel.

Access to, or use of, the Internet by minor children is the responsibility of the parent or guardian. Unlike many public libraries, computer users at FLITE do not access the Internet through a filter. While some local city and county policies may require public libraries to provide filtered Internet access to minors, FLITE does not use filtering software because this is a university library and does not offer services to children.

All users of the FLITE computer labs are expected to follow the business policy letter 96:07, "Proper Use of Information Resources, Information Technology, and Networks Policy." This policy is located at: Link.

Approved by the FLITE Administrative Council, March 3, 2010
