McClure, Polley A.


In recent years, colleges and universities have experienced tremendous growth in the applications of electronic information and the technologies that support the effective manipulation, transmission, storage, and use of that information. Because the growth has been so rapid, campus leaders are often challenged to effectively manage this increasingly critical function. Organizing and Managing Information Resources on Your Campus provides an overview of current thinking about the most important issues involved in managing information technology and services on campus. This vital resource offers information on how to plan, organize, fund, assess, and govern these strategic assets. It also compares and contrasts approaches appropriate for large versus small institutions, research versus teaching missions, and private verses public models. And the book provides a synthesis of practical advice interwoven with general background discussion. "With change swirling around higher education, this book is very timely because it is about managing a major change agent, information resources. Leaders will find very useful advice on information, technology, and services." - Ron Bleed, vice chancellor, information technologies, Maricopa Community Colleges "I think I'm fairly knowledgeable (for a provost, at least!) in IT matters, and I've encountered many of the authors of chapters in this book at various national meetings. Having them write down the key parts of what they know reminds me of how much more they know than I do. I learned a lot- from each chapter- and came away convinced that it will wonderfully inform academic leaders (department chairs, center directors, deans, provosts, presidents, financial officers, and the right subset of trustees of colleges and universities) about the key issues in IT and IR. This book not only raises these issues well but also offers well-placed and useful advice on how to deal with them." - Charles E. Phelps, provost, University of Rochester, Rochester, New YorkMcClure, Polley A. is the author of 'Organizing and Managing Information Resources on Your Campus', published 2003 under ISBN 9780787966652 and ISBN 0787966657.
