Computers and the Internet in the library
Library computers are for study and research purposes, including information search.
Mostly, computers are located in the computer workstations room on the 1st floor in pop-up reading rooms on Liivi Street. These computers require login.
NB! ID-card cannot be used for computer login. If your ID-card number is also your Library Card number, you have to enter it manually in the ESTERDOM.
Usernames and passwords:
- University of Tartu members – a common university username (ÕIS, LDAP) is used. To specify the username and solve password problems refer to the UT IT department.
- Non UT users: ESTERDOM domain. The username is the number of the Library Card (or the ID-card number with prefix "y").
When logging out, make sure that you really did log out. Not logging out is an offence – it keeps the computer engaged. In an emergency, you can push Reset button to log out.
