Our survey concerning software requirements in December 2016 has shown an increased demand for Adobe products. Therefore the Data Center has acquired more licences of Adobe products for members of the JGU (The licences are preliminarily limited until 30th April, 2018, and are not valid for affiliated instiutes).
Adobe Creative Suite CC2017
Including: Acrobat Pro DC, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator
The software may be installed via the Windows software center on computers within the domain uni-mainz. You will find hints about installation on this page: → https://www.en-zdv.uni-mainz.de/software-center/.
Licences for Windows and Mac operating systems can be acquired free of charge in the shop of the Data Center at the URL https://shop.zdv.uni-mainz.de .
The Data Center will bear the cost of the licences and make sure that they can be used. Unfortunately we are not able to provide courses and support in excess of our standard course programme.
We are planning to make this software available for students in all pool rooms operated by the Data Center.
