Computers 

Kimberlin Library has around 700 computers complemented by over 70 in the Eric Wood Learning Zone, 31 in Hugh Aston Law Library and 70 in The Greenhouse – both PCs and Macs are available. These computers give access to Microsoft Office, Internet access via a range of browsers and much more. There are a number of computers loaded with specialist CAD software such as Adobe CC, AutoCAD, Solidworks and Rhino. 

How do I log in to the computers?

Log on to these computers using your P number (on your student card ie: P0123456) as a username and your date of birth (until you change your password) in the following format: dd/mm/yy as the password.

Borrow a Laptop

Laptops are available for loan through our self-service facility for up to 2 hours. When you return the laptop, ensure to connect it to the charger. If a Laptop is not fully connected to the power cable and the locker door fully locked, the Laptop will remain on your account and fines applied as this prevents other students from borrowing it.

Printing

The Kimberlin Library is home to around 20 multifunction devices for printing both colour and black and white. There are also a number available in Eric Wood and The Greenhouse. These to allow you to:

  • Print double sided, using less paper
  • Print to any student printer across campus
  • Scan documents directly to your student email account

How does it work?

Just swipe your student ID card at any printer on campus and touch the icon for print, copy or scan.

  • Print, select your file from the list, and touch 'Start Print'
  • Photocopy, place the original on the flatbed and touch 'Start Copy'
  • Scan to email, place the original on the flatbed and touch email. When you fill out the fields it will be sent to your DMU email account

It is your responsibility to make sure that your work is 'print ready'. If you're not sure then please ask a member of staff. If a technical error has caused your document to be produced incorrectly, we can re-credit your account, but we will need evidence of this. 

Make sure that you log out once you've finished so no-one else can use your account.
