1. IT Open House for Faculty Proves Worthwhile
Last Thursday, ITSS and SUL/AIR co-sponsored an Information Technology Open House for
faculty in Meyer Library. Representatives from thirty-six campus-wide technology service groups were there for faculty to meet, ask questions of, and learn about resources (e.g., high speed remote access, technology support for courses). SUL/AIR participants included those who provide Academic Computing resources and services, as well as representatives from the Humanities Digital Information Service, Statistical Software Support, and Data and Statistical Software Services.

Also featured at the Open House were a series of demos on services that are new and/or useful to faculty (e.g., CourseWork and streaming media), as well as a wizards table where faculty could ask
infrastructure or specialized IT questions. This table was staffed
by Registry/Directory, Web services, Unix, PC, and Academic
Despite the rain, the turnout was good. Faculty who attended felt that the event was very useful and appreciated having the
opportunity to talk directly with the service providers. The Open House was also a great opportunity for staff in the different service groups to share information and exchange ideas.
Special thanks are in order to all who organized, set-up, and participated in this Open House.
