ECC Academic Resources Project

In Spring, 2003, the Academic Technology Committee began a long-term systematic review of academic resources across the college. This project first came about due to the need for up-to-date information to use in updating the College Technology Plan and in developing a more comprehensive and long-term view of costs in these times of budget reductions.

The ATC decided to start by developing a comprehensive listing of academic resources used at the college. Surveys were created to collect information on Academic Software, Computer Labs, and Media Classrooms in use across the college. The ATC decided to first concentrate its efforts on collating information on academic software, and in particular software that must be relicensed for use in the 2003-04 year in order to meet college budget planning deadlines.

The project will continue in Fall, 2003. The focus will be on collecting information on computer labs and media classrooms, and gathering additional information on Academic software. Also in the 2003-04 year, a subcommittee will design a survey to collect information on non-computer academic equipment and other resources across the college.

Anticipated benefits -

· students and faculty will more readily be able to locate the academic resources they need
· students, faculty, and staff will be able to make more efficient use of college resources
· cost savings will accrue from pooling the purchase of academic resources, such as software licenses, across programs
· the college can more effectively budget for critical academic resource needs

In June, the Academic Software Acquisition White Paper and Estimated Budget for 2003/04 were presented to the college.
