Test Proctoring Policies and Procedures

The Salina Public Library provides proctoring services without charge. Tests will be administered on library computers. Nancy Jo Leachman, Information Services Librarian (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , 785-825-4624) is the library’s coordinator of proctoring services.  All proctoring will be done by her or her designated substitute during vacations and illnesses. The library cannot guarantee a quiet environment. Staff will try to keep noise to a minimum but there is no enclosed area available for testing. Students easily distracted may want to make other arrangements. BOTH students and instructors should read ALL of the policies listed below to ensure that the Salina Public Library is a good fit with the student and the institution for their proctoring needs.


  • #2. MUST email the link to this page to their instructor and confirm that their instructor is in agreement with these policies. CC This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • We will observe the student during the exam but we will not sit with the student as the test is being taken.

  • If the allowance of any items such as notes, textbooks, personal laptops, etc. is not specifically mentioned in the test instructions, we will assume that these are not allowed.

Growing up in Salina, I loved laying in one of the old bathtubs in the childrens section, a stack of books on the ground beside me.
