Many hold prominent appointments in international, European and national bodies and specialist societies. Eastman staff hold editorships of many of the leading journals in the field and have authored some of the most important textbooks and research publications.
All lecture theatres and seminar rooms are equipped with digital data
projection. Lecture Capture (the facility to record lectures for subsequent access on-line) will be available from the start of the 2011/12 academic year.
EduRoam (UCL's wireless network), which allows UCL Students and Staff to
connect their own computer to the UCL Network, is available from hot-spots located in
lecture theatres and seminar rooms, throughout all the UCL libraries and in halls of residence. UCL also offers access to computing services from anywhere in the world through a web interface.
The library is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and a wide range of reading material in both print and electronic format.
