The PCs on the third floor of the library and some of the Macs on the second floor are bookable.
The key points to remember are:
You can still use computers in this area without booking, but be aware that they might be booked by someone else, and you will only be able to use them until that booking starts. Check the screen before logging in to see how long a computer is available for.
