TCCL currently has wireless internet hotspots ("wi-fi") at all library locations.
To use this service, there are a few things you should know.
You must have a laptop/notebook computer or PDA with a wireless network interface card which has been properly installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If you have a Mac, you can use this service with an installed AirPort card or other 802.11 (a, b, or G) compatible wireless card and software.
Configuration settings should match these values:
Save any modified settings and restart your device as required.
To connect, open your “Wireless Network Connection” by clicking the icon in the system tray.
[Note: Although you may see other entries, only TCCL-ap is being provided by the library and is the only one you are authorized to access. Connection to wireless networks for which you are not authorized may be subject to legal action.]
You now have a live Internet connection. Open your browser; you will be directed to a page with our wireless policy by which we expect users to abide while using our connection. From there, you may surf to other web sites.
Once you leave the library and are out of range of our wi-fi, you will automatically be disconnected from our network. If you prefer, when you are finished using the access, you can return to your “Wireless Network Connection” dialog box and click on “Disconnect.”
The service is free and available during the hours the library is open. Other than keeping the service itself up and running, the library cannot offer any technical support for your hardware or connection settings. Please refer to your owner’s manual or other support services offered by your device manufacturer. The library cannot guarantee that your device will be able to connect to our wireless service.
The library’s wireless hot spot – like most public hot spots – is not secure. Cautious and informed users should not transmit any personal information – like credit card numbers, passwords, or other sensitive data – while using this service. In addition, the library recommends that users have up-to-date virus and spam protection on their devices. The library is not responsible for any compromised information or hardware/software damage due to security issues.
Users will need to operate on battery power as library outlets are not available for use with this service except in designated areas at some library locations. Rearranging of library furniture to access an available outlet is not permitted.
This wireless access is as available as possible in the library, but you may encounter some "dead" spots where wireless reception is limited. If you have trouble accessing the Internet or staying connected, please move to a different location within the library.
There is no access to library printers via the wireless connection. If you need to print, save your information to a removable media device (floppy, CD, pen drive) and take it to one of the library’s public PCs.
If using sound, please use headphones so as not to disturb other customers.
It is the responsibility of the user to respect copyright laws and licensing agreements, and to assume responsibility for payment for any fee-based service.
Acceptable use includes respect for the privacy of other users and to maintain the integrity of the computer system.
Unacceptable use includes using the Internet for any illegal purpose, transmitting obscene or threatening material and using the system in a manner that precludes or hampers its use by others.
The Library uses filtering software. It is used to assist in preventing access to sites which violate Oklahoma State Statutes Title 21-1021-21-1024.4 and Title 21-1040.75-21-1040.77, otherwise known as "harmful to minors law." The current filter blocks sites featuring pornography, sex, tasteless gross acts and nudity. Because of this filter, wireless users may find some web pages unable to be displayed.
Any restriction or monitoring of a minor’s access to the library’s wireless hot spot is the sole responsibility of the parent or guardian.
Tulsa City-County Library assumes no responsibility for the safety of equipment or for compromise of device configurations, security, or data files resulting from connection to the Library's wireless access.
