The IRIS Center has various hardware and software available to students and faculty for their digital projects. Because resources may be needed for multiple projects, please reserve time to use resources on our Google Calendar. IRIS resources must only be used for appropriate, project-related use. This includes online activities. If any equipment or software is damaged or not functioning properly, please notify IRIS staff immediately.
This page lists all paid software available on each computer. It does not include various free software currently installed on some of the computers. Let IRIS staff know if you need particular free software installed for an IRIS project.
