Read the Blog!

This site is managed by the Cornell University Library’s Chief Technology Strategist, Dean Krafft. It’s authors will include a number of people from the Cornell University Library with an interest in how IT and the web is affecting the future directions of academic libraries. This site is primarily the home of the CULTech Blog – a place to discuss the events, challenges and opportunities of information technologies for CUL and academic libraries in general. Below, we list a number of sites and projects within CUL that also deal with various aspects of Library IT.

We encourage your comments and feedback. General comments are welcome on this page, or you can add specific comments to individual blog posts.
