Internet filtering policy and protocols in Surrey libraries

Surrey libraries uses Websense software to filter out undesirable material on our public internet terminals.

The first attachment below shows which categories are likely to be blocked on our machines. Please note that some categories are blocked on children's terminals, or when using a children's library card, but will be available when using an adult terminal or using an adult library card.
Please note wi-fi access in libraries is also filtered at the children's level.

The second attachment gives examples of which internet protocols are accepted on our library machines, as part of our filtering policy.
