The library does not purchase stand-alone software with funds for library materials.
Purchase requisitions for software should be submitted by colleges and departments
through normal channels to the U of M Director of Purchasing, the only University
official authorized to attach an addendum of legal limitations and sign agreements
with software suppliers.
If during the bibliographic search process it is determined that a title requested
for the library collection is accompanied by a CD-ROM or other software, the Collection
Management Department will attempt to ascertain whether any copyright restrictions
would preclude its use in a circulating library collection. The library reserves
the right to decline to purchase material containing such restrictions.
When purchased, material accompanied by discs will be housed in a location suitable
for safeguarding data on the discs.
