PCs and Laptops
Since opening our new Library, we have significantly increased the amount of computers in the building. Most PCs offer full access to the Internet, including access to your university e-mail account. These PCs also offer the Microsoft Office suite of applications, and are USB-disk enabled. You will need your username and password supplied by the Computer Centre to login to these PCs. Work can be saved to your personal drive on the student server.
Some PCs (called OPAC) are restricted to the campus intranet, allowing access to all services available on the campus network but are used particularly for searching the Library Catalogue. The layout of PCs in the Library is as follows:
On the Ground Floor of the new Library we have 42 PCs in the open plan area and 44 PCs combined in both of the Training Rooms. These PCs are available for students to use once there is no training booked in these rooms. A timetable for training is available on the door outside each room.
On the First Floor there are 43 PCs in the Training Rooms and 20 in the open plan study area. These PCs are available for students to use once there is no training booked in these rooms. A timetable for training is available on the door outside each room.
On the Second Floor there are twelve PCs in the open plan near the Postgraduate Room.
There is one OPAC computer on the ground floor, five on the first floor and four on the second floor. These are used for searching the Library Catalogue.
