The library currently provides access to ArcGIS Desktop Advanced software to university faculty and staff. Students can access the software suite in ACC room B-14, the Geospatial Lab in ACC B-16 or the CTRL Lab in Hurst Hall.

In order to install the software, your workstation must meet the following requirements:

  1. It must be a university-owned workstation. Our license doesn't allow for installation on personally-owned desktops or laptops.
  2. It must be running Windows 7 or above. (NOTE: ArcGIS is not currently supported on OS X)
  3. It must have a minimum of 4GB RAM.

If your workstation meets these criteria you can make a request to have the software installed by a technician or follow the instructions to install the suite yourself.

If you have any questions about the software or the installation process please contact Meagan Snow, (202) 885-6409.
