IT facilities at the EFL

Accessing the University network from the library
At the EFL we have six computer terminals in the Main Library, two are Reader PCs that can be logged onto and used for work, four are Quick Search machines for searching SOLO. A further 28 computers are available to use in our Computer Room, when the room is not being used for classes.

Logging on to Reader PCs in the library
Reader PCs in the Library require readers to log on individually using their Library card login and password. This ensures that the Bodleian Libraries conform to University IT regulations. If you are unsure which password to use, consult the Bodleian Libraries' Passwords webpage. Information on how to reset your library password is available online.

Wireless access
In order to take advantage of our wireless access facility, you need to access the Bodleian-Libraries network. Further details about wireless access in the Bodleian Libraries is available on the Libraries' website.

The EFL Computer Room is located within the Main Library, see our floorplan for details. It has 28 PCs available to readers and one PC at the front of the room for teaching purposes, connected to a data projector. One desk has an adjustable height setting to accommodate readers using wheelchairs.

Our Computer Room is available for the use of readers, during library opening hours, when there are no scheduled classes taking place in the room. To log on to these computers readers will need their Bodleian Libraries username and password.
