The Software Development Group (SDG) consists of dedicated corps of permanent and visiting information technology architects, designers, and programmers engaged in the development of software applications and systems in support of the mission of the University of Illinois Library, including grant-funded research and development projects.
Direction and priorities are set in collaboration with the service managers of specific projects, the Library's IT Prioritization and Review Working Group (ITPRWG), and in some cases with grant PIs. Significant new software development projects must be vetted through the ITPRWG. However, the manager of the Software Development Group is happy to consult with anyone in the Library who may have a project idea or proposal that they would like pursue.
