Information Services, Software Licensing, will work with departments that have unique software needs. Software Licensing will negotiate, procure and manage the software licenses. If possible, Software Licensing will attempt to identify other departments who have the same need to costshare the purchase.
Software licensing has experience in negotiating and managing large and small software contracts and can oftentimes acquire additional services and/or lower licensing costs. Because of a broad knowledge of university software acquisitions, Software Licensing may be able to identify other departments that have similar needs and arrange for a costshare – making the software more affordable and more widely available.
