You will need to have a current library card to use most of our computing facilities. The means of access differ across the two site libraries. Remember that more comprehensive information is available from the Library Services website.
North Hanover Street Library
5 PCs and 1 Apple Mac are available in the library, with a further 15 PCs and 5 Apple Macs available in the adjacent Flexible Learning Area.
Present your library card to a member of staff at either the library issue desk or the Flexible Learning Area desk. They will scan it to check your eligibility and to see if you have any unpaid fines.
You are then free to choose a computer and book yourself an available time slot on the booking sheets. You can book another slot at the end of your session, as long as another reader has not booked to go on after you. You can also book sessions up to a week in advance. Advance bookings will only be held for 10 minutes, after which your computer may revert to another reader.
Cathedral Street Library
22 stations are available in the IT Suite. Access is via a network username and password provided to Cathedral Street students upon induction. Other Glasgow Metropolitan College students can obtain an account from Cathedral Street library staff upon production of a current library card.
A further BRITE station provides priority access for visually impaired students and is available in the study area.
5 LIBNET PCs provide Internet and email access, along with printing facilities. Word processing is not supported. Usernames and passwords are not required, but students must book to use the computers through library staff. Time restrictions apply.
4 Non-networked PCs provide drop-in word processing facilities. Issued on a first-come-first-served basis with booking not required.
