Docking solutions are now available in the Chemistry Library

UPDATE: We now have four! 

Two ‘docking solutions’ consisting of a 27″ monitor, VGA and HDMI cables, mouse, and keyboard, are now available in the Chemistry Library.

This equipment is provided by the Chemistry Computer Officers to enable library users to access a large monitor via their laptop. There is no network connection.

Please connect your laptop to these, rather than removing cables from the other library PCs!


Instructions for use

Your laptop will need either a VGA or HDMI connection.

  1. Turn off the monitor (button is on the right underneath the bezel)
  2. Plug in your laptop and then turn on the monitor, wait to see if the laptop requires any drivers and then it should be good to go.
  3. If you wish to use the keyboard and mouse just plug the USB cable into your laptop. Wait until the drivers have been installed and again, you should be good to go.
  4. At the end of your session just unplug the connectors.


If you have any problems using this equipment please e-mail Chemistry Computing Support at
