Live PC Availability via IT Services' New Dashboard System

Tired of trudging around the Library looking for a spare PC? Give your feet a break and try IT Services' real-time PC & IT Lab availability system.

Recently upgraded, it comprises of a dashboard system that is made up of widgets showing different sets of information. The Lab Booking widget shows live bookings of all rooms, and which workstations are available within them. There are lists of the 24/7 open access labs, the labs with varied closing times, and the labs which are open 24/7 but limited to students of a particular school only - especially handy out of Library opening hours.

The Library has its own dashboard page and widget to help you navigate those rooms, and identify where on all four levels there is a workstation available. There is also a link to the our opening times and our room booking system.

If you're looking for a PC with a particular piece of software installed, there is a seperate software dashboard page with a widget for software searching.
