Desktop support requests within Biology should be initiated through the Biology Technology Coordinator, Dave Tieman. The Biology TC can install Office 2003 or 2007 for PCs and Office 2004 or 2008 for Mac, but only on University tagged equipment.
All computers registered on the UAlbany system should follow relevant University IT Policies and IT Policies and Supporting Docs.
ITS has some software available free and some licensed for nominal charge; CAScomp keeps an archive of useful PC downloads on the V: share (//P2/software). The University licenses Microsoft's SCEP antivirus software and this is installed on University computers. For personal computers, the equivalent is Microsoft's Security Essentials, which uses the same antivirus protection, and can be downloaded and updated for free. The University still has Symantec Antivirus available for University-owned Mac computers.
