Pricing and Availability
Tufts faculty and staff wishing to use these specific Oracle software products are responsible for purchasing any needed media. Each copy of the media costs $45.00 and may be ordered with an Interdepartmental Requisition (IDR). No additional licensing fees are required.
To obtain software media, contact Order-Oracle@tufts.edu. You will need to specify the product to be ordered, the platform(s) on which the product is to execute and 'ship-to' information. Be sure to include information on who you are and how you can be reached as well.
Hard-copy documentation is not included under the terms of the volume license agreement. Documentation is available directly from Oracle or a variety of third party publishers. In addition, there are several UseNet Newsgroups (e.g., the comp.databases.oracle hierarchy), which cover a range of topics of potential interest to Oracle users.
