Font Licensing

A license must be purchased to use computer fonts legally, and the license is restricted to the specific number of computers for which it is purchased. Because of the expense involved, the University cannot make Baskerville, Avenir or other fonts available campus-wide; a license has been purchased only for use on select computers.

If you wish to create a document using Baskerville and/or Avenir, and your computer has not been properly licensed, you may schedule time on a licensed workstation in the Instructional Resources Center (IRC). Please contact the IRC to make arrangements. If you would like assistance in purchasing a font license, please contact Academic Computing

Note that if you work with commercial printers, independent/freelance graphic designers and certain other vendors, they, too, must own the fonts required to produce University materials. They must purchase the fonts directly from a vendor who deals in Adobe typefaces.
