3. ‘Apple’ Support on Campus – Jim Kirkland
Jim raised the issue of the need for Apple support on campus. A survey of faculty in CBS indicated that 34% of the faculty use MACs. Jim also thought it would be interesting for ISC to see one of the research projects underway in the college.
Jim introduced Steve Crawford from Integrative Biology.
Steve gave a very interesting presentation on ATK – WS RESEARCH PROGRAM AND CFI GRANT.
Members agreed that Steve’s presentation was very informative and that this was the type of work that should be brought to ISC’s attention. It was suggested that other technology innovations occurring on campus could be brought forward and presented to ISC.
After some discussion among the members it was agreed that Mike and Jim would discuss Apple support further.
