Software

The following list describes the software and computer features available in the Scholarly Commons Room 306 and 316 Main Library. Please note that all library computers are equipped with a standard software configuration. You can view a list of this software on the Library Technology Computers and Software page. All library computers also come with assistive software for users with disabilities. A list of this software can be found on the Assistive Technology & Software page.

Upon request software updates are done annually at the beginning of the summer.  Room 306 and 316 Main software and/or updates go through the Scholarly Commons staff that manage these spaces. If you wish to request that a software be added to the Scholarly Commons computers, please email sc@library.illinois.edu.

Instructors – Please make sure to test any application(s) you plan to use for instruction at least a few weeks prior to your instruction.  If there are application problems, then please submit an OTRS ticket.  Remember any software updates are done annually at the beginning of the summer and need to go through Scholarly Commons.

Please contact the Library IT Help Desk (217-244-4688) about any questions or problems regarding the equipment.
