Laptop Loans

13 October 2014

In response to NSS feedback about people sometimes having difficulty in getting access to a pc in the Health Library we are undertaking a trial of having 15 laptops available to loan.

These laptops will be available for a maximum of 4 hours each, the laptops can be borrowed by coming to the Health Library enquiry desk and you will need to have your Library card to borrow the laptop.

Laptops can be borrowed Monday – Friday from 8.30am and the last loan will be at 3pm.  Laptops must be returned by 7pm and there will be fines on overdue laptops of £1 per hour to a maximum of £10 (and charges for lost laptops if they are not returned).  The laptops can NOT be taken out of the Health Library.

The laptops are set up for you to connect to eduroam and have Office 2013 installed as well as connections for Endnote Web.

After each use the laptops are set to reset themselves so please do NOT save anything on to the laptops as it will be wiped after each use.

As this is a pilot we are very keen on any feedback as whether there is the right software installed on them, and whether you prefer using them to the fixed desk pcs.
