Wireless working is possible in all libraries, allowing you to access your personal filestore on the University network, e-Library, email and other internet services.
Visit Wireless working for user guides, FAQs and information about building locations.
Before you connect to the Wireless network, ensure that you have no file sharing (peer to peer / p2p) software, such as torrent, set to download or upload copyrighted material (including music, films, games and software) and that your computer (PC/Mac) has had its operating system updated and up-to-date antivirus software installed.
Please contact the ITS Service Desk (email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0161 295 2444) if you wish to give feedback about the wireless service, or want help with using it.
Visit Working anywhere to discover how to access your own filestore area of the University's network.
Usernames, passwords and licensing restrictions
Some electronic resources can be accessed directly by typing in the website address and using a username and password to prove that you are a Salford student or staff member. These usernames and passwords are available from the E-resources password web page. If you are accessing this page from off campus you will need to activate the proxy service. A User Guide Web authentication - access to restricted web pages from off campus [pdf] is available to help.
A further set of electronic resources is not available at all off campus due to licensing restrictions. If you need information about one of these please call the ITS Service Desk: 0161 295 2444, email email@example.com, or contact the Academic Support Librarian for your college or unit who will conduct a search on your behalf.
The University's web-based email system for students allows you easy access to your email account on and off campus.
Remember to check your email account regularly as it is used for all official University communications. For example, The Library will use it to inform you that reservations are ready for collection and to remind you that items are due for return. Similarly, if your tutor or School need to contact you by email they will use your University email address.
