Technology News & Updates
Our Technology Fee Committee completed their meetings on Tuesday, March 13, and determined their recommendations as to which projects/proposals will be funded. The Library, in a generous move, cut about $100,000.00 from their overall requests. JCT, ART, and MUSIC were listed as A&H’s highest priority projects.
CUNYfirst will be implemented in April. In order to use the CUNYfirst system, you must first claim your account. For information on CUNYfirst and to claim your account, go to www.lehman.cuny.edu/cunyfirst/index.php.
Lehman Connect Server
Lehman connect is described as a Microsoft SharePoint-based intranet for faculty, ITR members, and other staff. It is currently in its beta phase. This will provide a collaboration environment where users may use a single password to access e-mail; shared documents, and announcement of events (eliminate those LISTSERV e-mails from clogging your inbox).
Lehman College now has a blog. You may view it at http://blog.lehman.edu/
No word yet on computer replacements for your older models. Check this site for updates.
The Tech Team consists of Lehman students hired to work in the technology field by various schools and the Library. Many are currently serving as CUNYfirst auxiliary staff. These are part-time positions funded exclusively by Technology Fee funds, and they provide an excellent opportunity to learn and earn.
