PC timeouts in the Central Library

by Debbie

Many students complained about access to computers via our recent library survey. As we move into the busy revision/examination period we want to make sure everyone gets a fair opportunity to use the PCs available.

To help achieve this we’ve introduced an automatic logout time of 15 minutes for all PCs in the Central Library on the South Kensington campus.

This will operate as follows:

  • After 10 minutes of inactivity your PC will lock (but can be unlocked by the current user)
  • After a further 5 minutes the PC will automatically logout (NOTE: unsaved work is lost)

Any machine that has logged out will automatically be available for others to use.
