Attempting to visit or visiting, attempting to view or viewing inappropriate sites, or printing morally objectionable material, is prohibited.


All Mesa Verde HS Library Internet usage is governed by the San Juan Unified School District  Acceptable Use Policy.  You are responsible for appropriate activity on library computers.  Access is a privilege, not a right.  Damaging computer systems, playing games, displaying offensive or inappropriate messages, pictures or obscene language, changing ANY settings, and downloading files, games or anything other than articles/pictures for research are all prohibited and punishable by disciplinary action.  Mesa Verde HS Library computers are not available for sending or receiving personal e-mail or communicating with any form of messaging.  Any abuse or violation of computer rules may result in network access being denied, revoked or suspended, and may include disciplinary action and/or legal referral.

State of California Online databases
Comprehensive online licensed databases are available within the 'My Apps' page.  The databases include Britannica, Gale, and ProQuest.  

Printing from computers
You may print articles from the library computer work stations.  Printing is at no cost to students, but be aware that the printer toner and printer paper must be paid for from the school budget. Make every effort to be responsible with any printing needs. Be sure to select the Library B&W printer if the document does not need to be printed in color.  To avoid excess paper use when printing from the Internet, you should copy and paste text, when possible, from a website to a Google Docs or Microsoft Word document.  (Highlight the text you wish to print, right click > copy; open a Document, right click > paste.)
