This Is Auburn Auburn University Libraries Remote Lab

Remote Lab

Welcome to the AU Libraries Remote Desktop Access Portal!

Through remote desktop you can access and use all of the Library’s software that you would normally be able to use on-site in the Media & Digital Resource Lab (MDRL), the RBD 2nd Floor Lab, and the Library of Architecture Design and Construction (LADC).

The portal has groups of computers from three on-site labs. The software in each group is slightly different, so please refer to the chart below before choosing a machine.

A few tips before you start:

  1. When accessing a machine please be patient, it takes time to create your profile before you see the remote machine desktop.
  2. Expect to see some lag in certain software. If your internet connection is slow or spotty, you may have problems; log out and try another machine; check your internet connection.
  3. Maximize your browser window and use F11 to go full screen for a better view.
  4. While in a remote session, use cloud storage to transfer files to the remote machine or drag and drop files onto the remote window and they will appear in a drive called Guacamole Filesystem.
  5. If you are idle for 30 minutes, you will be logged out and lose your work.
