 Desktop Security:

Security for the desktops in the open lab is implemented in layers, which provides a more comprehensive, yet less intrusive protection over the workstations while allowing library patrons the use of standard Windows interface features. The security system is intended to protect the open lab PC’s and the network from innocent blunders and malicious experimentation.
