Advancing Knowledge - Technology

Advancement through technology

IU Bloomington will advance through technology, including the creation of databases, providing technological and research tools, and supporting the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology initiatives.

This aligns with IU Bloomington Bicentennial Objective Six.

Surveying our facilities

Goal: Consider the concept of core facilities, beginning with creating a searchable campus database of research facilities and equipment to minimize duplication.

Update: The Office of the Vice Provost for Research and Office of the Vice President for Research are partnering with UITS to produce and maintain a robust equipment and lab facilities database. The launch of the website is scheduled for May 2019. As part of the research offices' review of potential vendors for research development technologies that will help find funding opportunities and faculty experts, vendors will demonstrate their products and capabilities during visits to IU. The vendors are Pivot/COS, Academic Analytics, and Elsevier.

Faculty database

Goal: Create a searchable faculty database that identifies our strengths to potential collaborators.

Update: Digital Measures Activity Insight, a software designed to organize, manage, and report on faculty activities and CV data, launched in 2016 in partnership with the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs.
