Laptops Available in Grangegorman Library

Do you need to work on a project but don't have a laptop, or can't get access to the PCs in the library?
The library has 15 laptops available for students to borrow for use in the library only. You can print using Datapac's Upload a Document service- see ditprint.ie
The laptops are automatically connected to the internet via Eduroam.
You will need to save work to a memory stick as you will not be able to save any work to the laptops.
They can be borrowed for 3 hours at a time and can only be used within the library or the group study rooms.

We hope that students will find the laptops an excellent resource.

Who says Fashion and Libraries don't mix?!

Is this what the fashion world thinks of us? Women with glasses and buns in their hair, albeit in high end clothes! Orla Kiely's AW15 collection has some lovely pieces but not a computer in sight. No worries about access to electronic resources here...
