BGSU Software Distribution Procedures


On campus clients can get software from the BGSU software server. It contains both Windows and Macintosh licensed software, freeware generally available in the public domain, and some applications pre-configured for BGSU. Keyed applications are intended for institutionally-owned systems only; unkeyed applications are available to anyone on campus. For more information about software on the BGSU Software Server see the Software Distribution via BGSU Software Server page.

Certain software applications are available on CDs for checkout at the Jerome Library Circulation Desk or the Firelands Library. This page provides links to information about the applications available and some of the restrictions associated with their use. When checking out a certain CD, there is a check-out form that must be filled out. The purpose of the form is to insure the client understands the stipulations associated with the use of the installation CD and the software on it.

See the following links for more information about the applications available:

  • Microsoft CDs.

  • Anti-Virus CD.

  • SAS¬†(Windows) - Can be installed on personal machines in the Academic Resource Center in 103 Olscamp
