[Michlib-l] Internet permission forms

Hello all,

We are reviewing our current Internet policy and are wondering how many 
libraries still require parents/guardians to sign a permission slip 
before their children (under 18?) are permitted on the Internet.  If so, 
what is the thinking for continuing the practice? Or, have you made 
changes recently?

We do lightly filter our computers, but all of our seven buildings are 
relatively small and we do not have the luxury of having separate 
computers for children or teens (with different filtering levels).  We 
do state in our policy that parents are responsible for determining what 
is appropriate for their own children.

Grateful for any thoughts or information.  Thank you,   Debby
