We're making it easier to work from your laptop in the library by trialling a BYOD Docking Monitors service at Wollongong and Shoalhaven libraries. Bring your own device (BYOD) and plug into one of our Docking Monitors using the supplied USB-C cable (works with both Windows and Mac devices).
You'll be able to:
- use your laptop alongside a large computer monitor to work more effectively
- improve ergonomics by working with a larger screen
- charge your device
The BYOD Docking Monitors are located:
- Level 1 southern end near the staff lift (Wollongong Campus Library)
- study desks (Shoalhaven Campus Library)
Find IT support on Connecting to a Dell USB-C Monitor Hub.
The BYOD Docking Monitors are being trialled for Spring Session following feedback and data on how students use technology when studying.
Thanks for your feedback
We appreciate your feedback on the BYOD Docking Monitors to help inform future decision-making after the trial period.
Based on your feedback we've added HDMI cables in addition to USB-C to better support older laptops, and you'll be seeing more BYOD Docking Monitors in the future!
