Tracy shows you where to find specialist software and MACs in the Library

Clifford Whitworth Library contains a number of designated PCs with specialist software on them.

The PCs are labelled, indicating which ones have the software on, and are all available 24/7.

Specialist software available in Clifford Whitworth Library includes:

  • Autodesk BDS (the full suite)
  • AutoCAD (also now on all of the open access PCs in Clifford Whitworth Library)
  • Autodesk Revit  (also now on all of the open access PCs in Clifford Whitworth Library)
  • ChemSketch
  • Datastream
  • Estate Manager
  • Inspiration
  • Linux

To help you find them, we have some maps showing where the PCs are located:

If you have any problems locating software or the MACs in the Library, please visit the Library Enquiry Desk for further help, or ask your Academic Support Librarian.

Please note:  Due to the popularity of the PCs during peak times, it is advisable to kindly ask any person working on a PC with specialist software on if you can use it if you need it urgently, should other PCs be available to move to.

As noted above, students will be made aware of the PCs with specialist software on because they are clearly labelled.  Related to this, please do allow yourself plenty of time to access the software should you need to use it by a deadline.

Don’t forget that standard software is also available!

There is also a range of standard software available on all of The Library’s open access PCs across campus.  You can find out what software is available here.

To find out where open access PCs are located across campus, and how many are available in real time, take a look at the list here.

As a student you also have access to some software from off campus via the Student Software Portal.  To find out more and learn how to access it, take a look here.
