Microsoft Campus Agreement Software in Bookstore
In August 1999, UNT entered into a one-year Microsoft Campus Agreement that provides a campus-wide site license for some of the most commonly-used Microsoft desktop products. We are in the final stages of renewing that agreement, and I thought that users on campus should be reminded that an important feature of the agreement allows UNT employees at the Denton campus or the System Center, but not the Health Sciences Center, to purchase the following products for essentially the cost of reproducing the CD-ROM's needed to install them:
Faculty and staff have the right to install one copy of each of the software packages, for school related activities, on either a laptop or desktop that they own or lease. Copies of these products for sale in the Bookstore for a fee of $7.00 per CD (Office 2000, for example, comes on two CD's, so your cost would be $14: Office 2000 normally costs $200 to academic users.)
If you're responsible for acquiring any of these products for on-campus use, you should see the network manager because the products can be installed for free on any machine owned by the University.
