Computing and WiFi

Computing

The Library has several catalogue terminals, which can be used to search iDiscover. There is also one adjacent PC connected to the UL electronic legal deposit collection, which may be used to access titles deposited in electronic form with the University Library.

The Library has six PC workstations, which are part of the Managed Cluster Service (MCS) and are equipped with software for word processing and Internet browsing. These computers are available for use by current members of the University and academic visitors with a Desktop Services account. See the UIS website for more information on obtaining a Desktop Services account.

Readers are welcome to use laptops throughout the Library, with the exception of the laptop-free zone which runs from desks 19-23 on the Sidgwick Site side of the Library.  

WiFi

WiFi is available in the Library through the eduroam network for current University members, and for staff and students of other institutions which use the eduroam service. In addition, the UniofCam network offers access for current staff and students through a browser-based Raven login, and for visitors with a valid ticket. The Classical Faculty Library is unable to issue tickets for this network.

For more information on configuring WiFi access, see the UIS information on Wireless networking at Cambridge.
