Podcast: Cliff Lynch on Information Technology as a Strategic Resource

Particularly in these difficult economic times that are demanding a rethinking of many practices, information technology should be treated as a strategic resource, enabling and supporting change in research and scholarship, in teaching and learning, and in partnership with the library and academic information management. This approach will be vital not only locally on campuses but also across institutions of higher education, allowing them to work together to engage in new cross-institutional resource sharing, teaching and learning initiatives, and research collaborations. This presentation by Clifford Lynch, Executive Director of the Coalition for Networked Information, makes the case for this perspective and provides provocative examples to suggest the range of opportunities available for schools of all sizes and all missions.
