Research & Instructional Support

Research & Instructional Support provides guidance and support for the academic use of library and technology resources and the production of digital media.

We collaborate with faculty on solutions to their instructional needs, participate in campus-wide discussions on instructional technology and research support, and provide programs and services electronically and in-person in the Clapp, Art, Music and Science libraries and the Knapp Media & Technology Center.
