3. Software Licensing.

It would be very helpful to science and engineering departments and research groups if there were a way to easily find out

This would make it easier to coordinate volume discounts on licenses, and, in some cases, to arrange university-wide site licenses.

We recommend that this information on licenses be made available on a web page managed by CIT. When individuals or departments express interest in the possibility of new or additional licenses, CIT should take the lead in alerting other potentially interested parties so that volume discounts or site licenses can be considered.
