The Computer Campus: Integrating Information Systems and Services


Super computing is used by scientists and engineers working on complex research problems. Such investigations may involve data-intensive applications that consume enormous amounts of bandwidth and computing power. Instruction on campus is increasingly tied to learning management systems, which require seamless integration with information resources found in libraries.


At the same time, libraries are expressing numerous concerns associated with digital asset and access management. Where is the institutional IT department and just how far can its resources be stretched? This virtual event will look at systems demands found on campus and offer examples of how innovative research institutions (and most particularly, their libraries) are meeting the challenges of talent-sourcing, integration, and support.


Our first block of speakers will address the topic at a high level. The second block of speakers will address specific types of computing and IT services that the library is asked to support in some fashion and the third block of speakers will cover policy concerns, such as privacy and ethical use of collected data. 


Confirmed Speakers:

·      Robert H. McDonald, Dean of University Libraries, University of Colorado - Boulder;

·      Scott W.H. Young, User Experience & Assessment Librarian, Montana State University;
