These pages describe software that is already available. See also our Software Packaging service.

These pages are an attempt to describe software in common use within the School. Each contains some standard details including a wikipedia reference: usually a better source of impartial information (particularly version/edition details) than the "home" site which is also included but may well be mainly promoting the latest update. You might also look at http://www.ncl.ac.uk/itservice/software/licences which covers software available via central NUIT, possibily requiring a licence fee. If you cannot find the software you need after looking here, please raise a support ticket with full details of what the software is for and where it is to be installed etc.

Please note that commercial software has a multitude of differing licence models and the School needs to be able to account for all licensed software on its machines.
