Software licenses at UiB may be divided into four categories:

To be able to use software legally, a license is normally required. However, some licenses are given for free, and some are already paid for.

  • Software needing a license: For this kind of software the department needs to buy the right number of licenses.
  • Site license: This is software for which UiB or at least one department at UiB has entered into an agreement covering all of UiB. (In some cases a site license may also cover one or more departments.
  • License server software: This license type means that the software connects to a dedicated server to verify the license. This solution is often used for a limited number of licenses are bought to use at the same time.
  • Free software. Free software can be freely distributed to UiB PCs as long as a software installation package is available.
