An Interview with Jack McCredie at CNI's 2007 Spring Task Force Meeting

This podcast features a 13 minute interview with Jack McCredie, Associate Vice Chancellor, Emeritus, CIO, Emeritus, and Senior Research Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley. He discusses collaboration between departments, campuses, and institutions and the issues and challenges facing system unification.

An important issue in planning, managing, and funding the broad range of information services on campuses is how to get departmental, campus, system-wide, and external organizations to work well together. Often they do not, and sometimes they actively compete.

The EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR), the Common Solutions Group, CNI, the UC Berkeley campus, and many other organizations have been working on developing collaborative models that provide better service and that save money.

This interview is provided courtesy of CNI and was recorded at their 2007 Spring Task Force Meeting.  The Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) is an organization dedicated to supporting the transformative promise of networked information technology for the advancement of scholarly communication and the enrichment of intellectual productivity.  You can learn more about CNI at their web site,
