Information Technology works with departmental contacts in charge of the lab spaces to ensure that software needed to support the curricular goals of the space is installed and operational. In most cases, close cooperation between the department and IT is needed to ensure proper operation.
Updates or changes to existing software should be requested prior to the end of the previous semester, allowing work to take place when classes are not in session. Generally, an email is sent to campus as a reminder.
Requests for new software should be submitted to IT in the fall semester prior to the academic year the software is desired to be used. This allows time for proper vetting and budgeting.
All computer software is to be purchased and licensed through Information Technology in order to properly maintain compliance with End User License Agreements.
