Finding the PC (or Mac) you’re looking for

Across our four locations, in partnership with ITMS the Library provides over 800 PCs, Macs and laptops to support your learning. We’ve been working on a project with ITMS to give you a better view of the location and the current availability of machines. You can now see a display screen at the entrance to Kimberlin Library, Eric Wood Learning Zone and The Greenhouse giving live availability information.

The screen shows the location, type of machine (standard PC, Dual Boot. AutoCAD, Mac or Assistive), the number of free machines and the total machines in that area. The columns on the right show the number of “free” machines by type in that space. If availability is becoming short, the text will turn red


PC availability is currently only available via these fixed screens, but an online link and display of this information via myDMU is on our wishlist with ITMS.

Here’s where you’ll find our “special” PCs and Macs:
