IT Services is relocating the IT Service Desk Walk-in Service to the Sir Duncan Rice Library from Monday 3 September 2018. This means that the current walk-in location in the Edward Wright Building will be permanently closed to visitors after Friday 31 August.

In the Sir Duncan Rice Library, the IT Service Desk will be placed alongside the Library Information Desk, and it will provide the users help in person with IT related queries. The Desk is open from Monday to Friday, between 9 am and 5 pm.

IT Services will continue to handle email and phone inquiries as usual, and the Foresterhill Service Desk remains open in room 1:122 of the Polwarth Building. You can also log an IT query any time through MyIT portal.

Taylor Library MFD update

MFDIT Services have analysed usage of MFDs in Taylor Library (and across campus) and have made a some of changes as a result of their findings. Now, the four MFDs opposite the issue desk are all black and white machines as they are by far the most heavily used. If you require colour printing, the MFD in the PC classroom on floor 2 provides this option. It has been replaced with a larger model in order to better cope with the level of use. Just make sure to select the colour printer when sending your job.
