PCs, Laptops and Printing

PCs are available on both floors of the Library and in various study rooms. All PCs can be used to print.

Usernames and passwords
Students are provided with a username and password at registration. Contact IT Support if you have problems logging on.

Temporary access may be available to Library visitors.

Saving your work and automatic log out
You should save your work to My Documents. Work saved to My Documents will be available to you from any PC when you log on.

You are automatically logged out from Library PCs after 15 minutes of inactivity and you will lose any work that has not been saved.

Make sure you log out from your account when you are finished so that nobody else can access it.

All software on Library PCs is managed by Computer Services. Contact them with any queries.

Borrowing a Laptop

A number of laptops are available to borrow from the Library Information Desk. These can be used in the Library for two hours at a time. The laptops offer some of the applications available on the desktop PCs and you can also use them for mobile printing.

You need a current student card to borrow a laptop. Your Library account should also be free from fines or overdue loans.

Booking a PC
PCs on each floor may be booked by students. You may be asked to log off a PC if someone else has booked it.

Students can book a PC here for one hour at a time if the booking is made 30 minutes in advance. Log in using your Institute username and password. A booking confirmation will be emailed to you. Laptop desks can also be booked. The guide near the bottom of this screen shows how to make a PC or laptop desk booking.
