Library Information Technology Introduction for New Faculty
The Library Information Technology Department supports the academic and digital research needs of university faculty by helping them with a full range of library technology services to create new knowledge.
Do you need specialized software for your classes or projects? Don’t buy it yourself—use it at the Library! Library computers are equipped with more than 50 specialized programs, from Photoshop and InDesign to Matlab and HyperChem. Visit the Library’s website to see which programs are available and which computers have them.
The Library also provides faculty with an institutional repository, DigitalGeorgetown, where they can archive and preserve their and their students’ research and scholarship. The repository is also a portal for digitized special collections and other unique collections.
The Library also provides digital scholarship services where faculty can leverage digital technology to ask new research questions and share their research with a global audience. Faculty and students work with our digital services team to identify relevant digital scholarship tools and resources and explore how to apply these technology tools and methodologies to their projects. Digital Scholarship and Services Librarians can provide assistance with areas such as text mining, data management and visualization, digital project planning, and more.
