Software Services for Visiting Professors


Standard Software Suite

All computers purchased through ITS have the Law School's standard software suite pre-installed.  Visiting Professors and Lecturers are requested to consult with ITS on software purchases that are outside of the standard software suite.  This will allow ITS to keep track of additional software purchases and investigate if this additional software should be added to our standard software suite.

Standard Software Suite includes:

  • Windows XP
  • Office 2003 Professional (Access, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher)
  • Outlook
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • HLS/FAS VPN Client Software
  • Internet Explorer
  • QuickTime Player
  • RealPlayer
  • Microsoft Endpoint & Defender Antivirus

Additional Software

Upon request, ITS also installs and supports the following software on all Harvard owned visiting professor and lecturer computers:

  • Corel WordPerfect
  • Adobe Acrobat (full version)
  • EndNote

Additional licenses of programs such as WordPerfect, Adobe Acrobat full version, and EndNote will be charged to the discretionary portion of the faculty member’s allowance as would other software like STATA or SPSS.  For visiting professors and lecturers, non-standard software applications that cost over $250 will need pre-approval from the Office of Academic Affairs.
