Software Installation in STS-supported Computer Facilities
Last updated Feb 20, 2012
I. General Information
Student Technology Services (STS) receives many requests to install
software to existing computerfacilities. Because of the limited resources in
campus computer facilities and the heavy demand for them, modifications and
additions during the semester must be done cautiously to avoid disruptions.
These changes also make demands on STS staff, both for the initial
installations and ongoing maintenance.
STS strives to provide a stable and secure operating system and a
functional application set in every computer facility.
Following these policies and procedures should enable STS to respond
consistently to each software installation request, to address technical
issues before a large-scale installation takes place, and to maintain
stability and functionality within the computer facility.
These policies and procedures will help STS Staff work with departments to
provide customized academictechnology resources that are safe and reliable
and that contribute to an environment where learning can flourish.
