Open access computers

There are over 400 PCs available in the Library on all 3 floors which you can use with your normal University login. They are configured with the standard student software portfolio and connected to printers in the Library.

Some PCs have specialised equipment attached e.g. scanners or assitive technology. Please give priority on these PCs to those who need to use the special equipment.

A number of PCs are set up to be used purely to access the Library catalogue.

Open access PCs can be in high demand at certain times of the year, but there are other locations around the University where you can find some. A real time chart of current availabilty will show you where you will most likely find a PC.

If you are having problems, please check the Known Problems and IT Help page. In addition IT support staff from Information Services can be found at the Support Services Desk on the ground floor.
