All set for Christmas?

All set for Christmas?

With the Christmas vacation period just around the corner, it is a good time to check that you are all set up for working from home. Even if you plan never to do anything university-related over the holidays, having your personal device set up to access the university computer network from wherever you are will mean that if you should need anything during or after the holidays, everything will be set up to use all the software and library eresources you might want, meaning you have one less thing to worry about when library staff are away.

Connecting to the university computer network remotely is a simple matter of installing a small lightweight app called the GlobalProtect VPN and logging into your university computer account if and when you want to use the university network. You can find simple video guides and instructions for connecting to the university computer network on MyPort.

In the unlikely event that you experience any difficulties or if you would prefer someone to talk you through the process, Library and IT staff are both here to help until Friday 22 December, in person, online and by telephone.

Assistant Librarian (Promotions) at the University Library. An enthusiastic advocate of libraries, diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice for all, inside and outside the workplace.
