You will need an IT account to use the computer facilities in the Drill Hall Library. These accounts are provided for you by your home institution. The procedure for claiming your IT account will differ between institutions so please see your home institution's website for details.
Once you have your computing account you can log in to any PC in the Drill Hall Library. The method for doing this differs slightly per institution so please follow the instructions displayed on the login screen.
