DiSCO Staff

Research & Instructional Technology

The DiSCO is staffed by the Research & Instructional Technology group within Library and Information Technology Services (LITS); a cross-disciplinary team of technologists and librarians with wide-ranging expertise in the areas of information, data, media, and digital literacies.

Every department has a dedicated Research and Instruction librarian and an Instructional Technologist who serve as liaisons for faculty (see below). Liaisons consult with faculty on projects involving research and/or technology and help to train students in related areas. 

For general questions, see help links to the right. For specific research and instructional support, see staff and liaison information below.
