Information Access Seminar

Libraries and Campus IT: Collaborations with a Purpose

Friday, October 30, 2020
3:10 pm to 5:00 pm PDT
Salwa Ismail & Jenn Stringer

As more information resources become increasingly accessible through campus-wide networks, management of access to these information resources often becomes a shared responsibility of libraries and campus IT. Collaborative strategies are needed to ensure optimum use of resources and services to meet faculty, student, and researcher needs effectively.

This seminar talk will focus on discussing collaborative and shared experiences from efforts between the Library and the Office of the Chief Information Officer Information Services and Technology Division to provide users with robust access to digital and data scholarship and resources, handling privacy mandates and policies, and international access to scholarly resources. It will also discuss how these partnerships are vital to the successful development of initiatives and services that are enterprise and resilient.
