As well as providing online resources, all our Bodleian PCs are equipped with Microsoft Office (including Word, PowerPoint and Excel), PDF convertor software, EndNote for reference management, GIMP image editing software and PSPP statistics software.

At all the Bodleian Health Care Libraries there are also a number of NHS computers, for convenient access to the intranet, quick links to OUH emails and the e-learning platform. You will need an OUH Trust login to access these PCs.

PCAS accounts use your Bodleian Libraries username and password and you will need to ensure you have topped this up with credit before using.
