Building a Campus Information Culture


Delivering information resources is not merely a technical challenge, but an organizational one as well. An integrated information system benefits all sectors of an institution by meeting any individual's information needs through an accessible and familiar interface. Such an information system does not restructure a university so much as facilitate the operations of the institution.The Dartmouth College Information System (DCIS) provides easy and consistent access to a multitude of information resources, both at Dartmouth and at other institutions. The project integrates communications across diverse computer systems and depends on the cultivation of human communications between disparate organizations. This session will share the presenter's experience in augmenting the campus computing culture, garnering support, promoting utilization, and managing a campus-wide information system.
