Software Locator Available on Ball State University Libraries' Web Page

Finding GIS: Software Locator Available at University Libraries

Users can now find out what software is available on the public access computers throughout Bracken Library by using the new Software Locator. The Software Locator can be accessed from the Student Virtual Library page of University Libraries Web page at http://www.bsu.edu/svl/. Software Locator can be found on the right side of the page.

To search for software installed on the University Libraries’ computers, type the first characters of the software name in the text box. Software titles that contain the characters you enter will be displayed in a drop-down list. Simply click on the correct software title. Then click the box “Find Software” to see a list of how many and the location of computers that have the specific software installed. Searches can also be limited to Windows only or Macs only by selecting the option above the text box.

The computer availability feature can be accessed by clicking on “Map” in the search results. The computer availability map allows library users to see every available computer on any floor of Bracken Library.

For more information, please contact the GRMC at 765/285-1097.
