To ensure better availability of computers for the education and research needs of University of Kentucky students, faculty and staff; most public computers in the William T. Young Library now require users to log in using UK "Link Blue" accounts (see locations highlighted in yellow below).
Five of the computers on the first floor (south wing), the majority of computers on the second floor and all computers provided by UK Libraries in the Hub (basement) and on the third, fourth and fifth floors (74 total) have been switched to "Link Blue" authentication. These changes provide enhanced computer access for UK-affiliated users of Young Library and replicate the type of computer access already established in the Hub and in the Science Library.
Non-UK visitors will still be able to access computers designated as “open computers” in Young Library (see locations highlighted in blue below). Young Library provides 21 computers in the west side of the Lobby and on the second floor in the north wing and Cores 1 and 2 for the general public. Visitors may also access library information using personal laptops or other Wi-Fi devices on the campus wireless network or they may plug into the wired network for access to UK Libraries’ information.
