Upgrading to Windows 10 & library computers – August 2019

Microsoft will no longer support Windows 7 from 2020 so we have begun the process of upgrading to Windows 10 or our computers will present a security risk and must be disconnected from the network. Our existing computers were not compatible with Windows 10 so we have started to migrate our library computer facilities.

  • We now have
  • three UCL E-Access Points (EAPs) for access to UCL e-resources. Printing is not possible from Explore Access Points. The Explore Access Point will allow you to save files to a USB stick as long as it does not carry encryption software. These will be migrated to Windows 10 later in the year.
  • six computers which are UCLH network access only which have been migrated to Windows 10 These can print to our UCLH printer (NB we do not have a UCLH follow me printer)
  • six Desktop@UCL computer workstations (which double up as study desks). We also have a print@UCL device.

Please see our Computer pages or contact the Library if you would like further information
