Accessing the Booking System – Guide


  1. To gain access to any resource in the Booking System, you must first complete the School of Creative Industries General Induction

2. You must then complete any additional inductions offered by your courses. These can be found via the Blackboard site of each course (see below image for location guidance).

Completing these additional inductions will give you access to different borrower privileges and the associated equipment, studios and rooms. You will not be able to log on and see any equipment without completing these inductions.

IMPORTANT: Regardless of your year of study, you have to complete the SOCI General Induction and additional inductions for access to equipment, studios and rooms each year.
