Additional software applications must be coordinated with the LRC. Due to the client –server architecture of the LRC Testing Labs, changes or additions to the software listing provided above requires extensive programming changes. As a result, changes to the software provided in the LRC testing labs cannot be implemented on an ad hoc basis. Therefore software changes or additions will not be processed during the academic semester.

Any changes to the testing lab software offerings are implemented during semester breaks. Software changes or additions must be submitted to the LRC, the LRC will coordinate the software requests with UAB IT. It is recommended that all software requests be submitted as far in advance as possible. The software must be UAB compliant and be compatible with the current LH testing lab software offerings. Please allow at least three weeks for processing, programming, and testing of the software application.
