LSE has licences to sell some teaching software to LSE members.
This software can be bought at the IT Help Desk on the first floor of the Library. See Purchasing Software.
Unfortunately, our licence for Endnote does not allow us to sell copies to students. If you have a laptop/PC that can access the LSE Remote Desktop you can access Endnote on there while off campus, however.
How can I pay for software at the IT Help Desk?
Accepted payment for software sales is by credit or debit card (American Express excluded) only.
Refunds, where required, can only be processed between 9:30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
Is there somewhere I can buy PC hardware?
The Students' Union Shop (on Houghton Street) sells some PC hardware such as USB sticks, network cables and security locks.
You can also try one of the following nearby electronics stores:
How is Information Management and Technology equipment insured?
Information Management and Technology policy on insurance for thefts and other damage to IT equipment:
Information Management and Technology has a small thefts contingency budget which covers any thefts from public computer areas and classrooms.
The excess on the insurance premium (which is £2000) for any departmental equipment should be paid from the departmental budget.
All items bought from IT budgets must be secured and advice can be sought from cluster support teams on the methods available. All other items bought via Information Management and Technology should be secured. Any refusal to secure the items listed below will be referred to LSE House Security for advice. Laptops should be stored in a locked area/cabinet when they are not in use.
Items which must be secured:
Public area printers
Information Management and Technology will assist in claims by providing copies of paperwork for items bought and replaced via the IT Purchasing Service.
It is the department's responsibility to immediately report any thefts to LSE House Security and pass information to Information Management and Technology once an LSE crime number is allocated.
IT equipment claims for other reasons (e.g. any building work damage, water/flood damage) by departments supported by Information Management and Technology may also be reported to Information Management and Technology who are able to liaise on your behalf with the relevant LSE service providers on an individual case basis.
