is currently supporting information systems developed by a wide variety
of projects in a diverse set of disciplines. By approaching museum and
archival information system design from a general perspective, MIP has
identified common approaches to information management across disciplines
and has designed data structures and data access tools of general utility.
addition to the museums and archives supported through MIP, a large
number of individuals and departments are creating and managing academic
information resources, designing information systems, and developing
new technologies. These projects are highly variable with respect to
overall goals, disciplinary area covered, and content produced. The
variety of campus organizations that support academic information technology
projects is found at the Computing & Communications page.
