EnvisionWare Print and Time Management

In response to the overwhelming popularity of its computer resources, the library has purchased EnvisionWare print and time management software. This software ensures equitable access to MCPL public computers as well as helping the library more responsibly manage its resources.

Envisionware Provides Time Management

EnvisionWare keeps track of the length of time one uses a computer at MCPL. The EnvisionWare software asks computer users to enter their library card number and password at the start of computer sessions. Library card users are provided with a total of four hours of computer time each day. The four hours of computer time can be distributed throughout the day. When the library is very busy and public use computers are in high demand, usage will be limited to 30-minute increments after the first hour. Users who do not have a library card can request a one-hour guest pass at the Information Desk.

Envisionware Provides Print Management

In an effort to be more responsible with its resources, the library has implemented a quota on the amount of free printing provided to library patrons. Library card users may print up to 3 pages for free per day. After a user's quota of free printing is reached, there is a charge of 10 cents for each additional page printed. Guest passes receive no free printing.

Your Privacy and Envisionware

The EnvisionWare software simply manages time and printing. The software does not have the ability to track Internet usage or any work done on the computer. Envisionware only tracks the amount of time users spend on library's computers during the day. Each day, the time record for each user is deleted.
