WebStore - Software access for consultants, affiliates and visiting scholars working for the University
To access WebStore products, an external user must first obtain a university NetID. Requestors must contact their campus HelpDesk with assistance obtaining a NetID. Go to NetID Center University of Illinois System (uillinois.edu) , scroll to the bottom of the page for "Need Help" and select your campus Help Desk to submit a request.
Once a NetID is obtained, the user will be able to login to WebStore but most products will not be accessible. WebStore may be able to manually grant access to certain software products. A request from the external user's sponsor should be sent to WebStore at email@example.com with details including the name of the software being requested, the job description of the employee/ scholar and the reason that they need the software. This request process can also apply to extra help employees, contractors and visiting scholars.
Once access is granted, the term of licensing availability will be defined by either the subscription end date stated on the sofware product, the termination date of the employee contract, or the termination of their NetID login, whichever comes first.
