The Office of Research and Technology is a large department. Many of the 'Behind the Scenes' units fall under this umbrella, including everything from maintaining the Library Gateway to on-campus digitization projects to the IT Help Desk.
The office's mission can be described as falling into four areas of activity in the Library: Information technology, research support services, entrepreneurial programs, and research data services. Library Information Technology includes people, technology and services of all types, on this campus and world-wide.
