UTC Library Software Requests

Policies

UTC departments may submit requests for new software for installation on library computers.

In order to ensure all software is fully tested on our machines, software must be requested by the deadlines stated below:

Spring Semester 2017: November 15th

No new software or software upgrades will be performed during the academic term. Commercial software beyond end-of-life and/or any software without active support or appropriate licensing will not be considered. We will not install trial, demo, or similar limited-use software.

All software is assumed to be installed for a period of one year, unless otherwise indicated. All previously requested software will need to be reviewed annually to determine continued support. If you wish to retain currently installed software, you must submit a new form at least once a year. Any software upgrades require a new form to be submitted.

Library staff will verify that a software installation starts properly and performs basic file, edit and print operations properly. Library staff does not have the expertise to verify the proper functionality of other software features.

By requesting installation of this software, you agree to test the software within our time frame prior to deployment to library computers, in order to insure proper installation, functionality and customization of the software.
