Steve Blackburn, Team Leader, Learning Resources, discusses what makes the netloan installation and functionality such a success for students and staff at Mid Cheshire College.
“We are a mid-sized college with 3 library centres across 2 campuses. Netloan allows us to administer the 93 PCs spread across those areas easily via a simple interface and flexible policy settings.
“We have been able to designate group areas, HE areas and drop in areas easily and assign allowances accordingly. The web interface also allows students to self-manage their time using their own login to create bookings in whichever centre, at whichever campus they’ll be studying.
“The provision of statistics from Netloan has helped to inform management decisions about centre opening and staffing requirements.
“Both staff and students enjoy the flexibility it offers in terms of accessing bookings and helping plan for both group and individual sessions.”
