Free and discounted software available

The campus is many things, even a place where you can find a few deals on software. Free anti-virus and bibliographic software, as well as discounted products, are available through the Software License Coordination (SLC) unit of Information and Educational Technology, and now Adobe has temporarily lowered prices on certain Adobe products available from TechHub at the UC Davis Bookstore for faculty and staff.

Until March 15, 2008, Adobe will let faculty and staff buy several Adobe student licenses--Adobe Design Premium for $339, for example, or Adobe Web Standard for $229. Get details from TechHub at (530) 752-1945.

Details about the SLC deals, which offer software products to students, staff, faculty, and departments at negotiated discounts, are available through the SLC office. Learn more here, or send questions to

Sophos Anti-virus software and EndNote bibliographic software are free to students, faculty and staff. These products are available at the SLC site, and on the Internet Tools CD available for free at the IT Express Computing Services Help Desk in Shields Library.
