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:

Fall Semester 2017: June 30th

Pending sufficient cause, no new software or software upgrades will be performed during the academic term. Commercial software beyond end-of-life and/or 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 be annually reviewed to determine continued support. If you wish to retain currently installed software, you must submit a new form each year. Any software upgrades require a new form to be submitted.

Library staff will verify that software properly runs and performs basic operations. Library staff does not possess the expertise to verify core or secondary functionality of all software.

By requesting installation of this software, you or someone from your department agrees to assist in testing the software prior to deployment to library computers, in order to ensure proper installation, functionality and customization. 

Instructions

Fill out the UTC Library Software Request Form.

Please read the following information before completing the form:

  • A copy of this form must be filled out for each software package.
  • Initial follow-up will be made within one business week of the request.
  • You will be notified when the software is ready for testing.

After submitting this form, please coordinate with Library IT to deliver:

  • Installation files and guides.
  • Licensing information (serial numbers, license codes, usage).

If your software is managed by Campus IT, let us know and we will coordinate with them to address your request.

Reasonable effort will be made to accommodate software requests. UTC Library does not guarantee installation on library computers.
