Computer Laboratory


The library provides a number of online services to local users, which are listed below. To prevent misuse, access to most of these is restricted to current staff and students in the department using Raven passwords. The facilities available are:

  • Database of student projects
    The annual coverage of the projects database can be checked here.
  • Book recommendation form
  • Log in to the catalogue
    This enables you to check your loans and make renewals. You do not need to log in simply to search the library's holdings.
  • Retrieve a catalogue record
    Experimental facility to retrieve a raw catalogue by control number. This is not a substitute for the regular searchable catalogue.
  • MARC field usage
    A statistical report on the usage of MARC fields in the Computer Laboratory library. Useful for identifying problem areas with the catalogue data, and monitoring progress in upgrading old records.
