time Limit Manager (TLM) Version 4.0 provides a convenient and reliable method to implement custom Usage Policies for public access computers, such as those currently deployed in public libraries.
Usage: The computer screen welcomes a new user. The screen displays information customized by you: for example, Library Usage Policy, news, or today’s events. With a simple PIN entry and click of a button, the user has access to the computer for the time you set. Never again worry about enforcing time limits. TLM provides all necessary infrastructure to display a Usage Policy on each computer screen, to require and obtain PATRON’s digital assent to the Usage Policy prior to computer access, to enforce computer session time, to effect an orderly closing of all previous session applications, and to return to the Usage Policy display for the next patron.
TLM is a mature product that can successfully help to implement a wide variety of Usage Policies with very Little effort from administrators. Best of all, once TLM is monitoring the Usage Policy, librarians are free to attend to their important responsibilities rather than policing the fair and proper use of public access computers.
