What do I need to do?

If you are looking for particular software that may be available on a lab computer, simply enter the URL above and search for the name in the search window.

The results will display a list of available applications matching your search.  Clicking on the symbols at the beginning of a line, will expand the list to show all the building and room locations that have the software installed, as well as a count of the number of PCs at that location.

The additional reporting feature (via the bar graph icon indicated above), also makes it easy for teaching staff to see if a particular lab has the required software.
