Unfortunately there has been another incident of laptop theft within the library. A MacBook Pro was stolen yesterday from the central computer area in Lower Camera. A similar incident occurred in November 2016. This is a sad reminder that theft does happen within the library. To minimise risk to your property and your research please take the following steps:
- Lock your laptop to the desk handles with a Laptop cable lock.
- Take your laptop with you even if you only move away for 15 minutes.
- Install a free “Find My laptop Device” such as Prey, or enable the “Find my … ” on Apple devices.
- Back up your work to the cloud or an external hard drive.
University Security and Thames Valley Police have been informed of this incident. We’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to keep belongings close and if you do notice anything odd or are concerned someone may be taking something that isn’t theirs please report it to library staff.
