Re: cd-rom licenses in electronic classroom


The SP database licenses and classroom/training addendum are renewed
annually. The librarian responsible for the training contacts our systems
office one week prior to the scheduled training so that the number of
simultaneous users can be increased on the day the class is being taught
and for a specified period of time. 

We use a software metering system "Soft Track?" (which runs on a NOVELL
server) to increase or decrease the number of users.
