New PC’s

April 6, 2005

From now on you will find faster PC’s in the library. The software on the computers in the library is the same as in the PC-rooms. You start with our homepage to find books, articles, working papers and e-sources.
Within a few weeks login and password will be necessary to use our computers. You can use your staff or student card. Externals can obtain a daily password at the library desk. Registration with identification card is compulsory. To minimize administrative load information concerning large groups should be passed on to the library on time.
