Yesterday afternoon and evening our Storychasers executive board had a retreat in one of the classrooms of the downtown Oklahoma City Metro Library. When logging onto their free wifi network, I read the fine print of their use agreement:
Under “Limitations and Disclaimers,” the website informs patrons:
Printers are not directly accessible via the wireless network. If you need to print, save to a floppy, email it to yourself then you can use one of our public workstations to print.
When was the last time a patron actually used a floppy disk at an OKC metro library? I’m thinking it’s time to update that use agreement and replace “floppy” with “flash/USB drive.”
