Source of future funding CSU? Cal Poly? ITS? Library? Grants?
Technology Plan – Four Themes Where does the library want to go as a whole? What is the Target Environment (TE)? How do we achieve the TE in a timely and efficient fashion? What will it cost to move from the current to the TE?
Vision of CSU : To enable all students, faculty, and staff to communicate to anyone, from any place, at anytime, through access to the full range of resources needed in the learning and teaching experience. Technology Plan – Four themes Where does the library want to go as a whole?
Vision & Mission of Cal Poly ITS: To connect people, processes, and content through the effective use of reliable information, computing, and telecommunications technologies and consulting services in support of the University’s core mission to provide quality education in a “learn by doing” environment. Technology Plan – Four themes Where does the library want to go as a whole?
Theme of Kennedy Library Reaching out: Building the Library’s Future By reaching out, the library wants to actively make a difference in furthering the Cal Poly mission, and become a campus center for teaching and learning. Advancing this theme means enhancing our current information systems and developing new services to bring information to our users at the time and point of need. Technology Plan – Four themes Where does the library want to go as a whole?
Vision of Kennedy Library Library prides itself on the early adoption and innovative application of information technology. Our challenge for the future is to balance tradition with technology to make information accessible regardless of form, place or time Technology Plan – Four themes Where does the library want to go as a whole?
Technology Plan – Four themes What is the target environment?

Lead in Collections This strategic area contains objectives that acknowledge the critical importance of collections and place effective collections management at the center of services and programming. The strategy is to improve the collection of and access to electronic resources available to the library’s users through the online catalog and to create digitized collections and programs to support the curricular and research needs of the university. Technology Plan – Four themes Outcomes of the TE
Collaborate in Teaching and Learning In today’s information age, it is imperative to produce graduates who are competent and literate users of information. This strategic area recognizes the library’s increased role as a teaching and learning commons for the university, where students, faculty and staff can effectively and efficiently learn how to use information in its various formats. This strategy includes providing smart teaching classrooms/study areas, student/faculty/staff development facility, and fully equipped research and computer labs. Technology Plan – Four themes Outcomes of the TE
Excel in service Service is the watchword of the library. Within this area of focus are objectives articulating and reaffirming this commitment to service and identifying ways in which services can be strengthened and enhanced to better address user needs. The strategy is to improve and expand user access to collections by increasing holdings represented in the library’s catalog, providing links to much-demanded electronic resources, improving customer service through more effective space utilization and renovation of selected library environments, and planning for a new teaching and learning center as part of the Digital Teaching Library. Technology Plan – Four themes Outcomes of the TE
Foster Organizational Change This provides a context to support and sustain the overall mission and strategic plan of the library that strengthens our ability to act in an effective manner to address the changing roles of our campus and our curriculum. The strategy is to improve service to library users by improving internal communication systems and incorporating new technologies. Technology Plan – Four themes Outcomes of the TE

Access – Network APPENDIX F California State University ITS-TII MINIMUM BASELINE STANDARDS (Working Draft) Introduction The California State University, through the Technology Infrastructure Initiative (TII) component of its Integrated Technology Strategy (ITS), is pursuing the build-out of the intra-campus telecommunications infrastructures at each of the 23 CSU campuses. This system wide project is the culmination of years of intensive effort by staff members across the University, efforts which have included the creation of a Telecommunications Master Plan (TIMP) for each campus and the development of the system's comprehensive technology standards, such as the Telecommunications Infrastructure Planning (TIP) Guidelines and the Minimum Baseline service provisioning standards.

CSU - Measures of Success Campuses vary greatly in their ability to provide students, faculty and staff comparable access to information technology resources. The inadequacies and disparities that motivated campus presidents to work together to improve the technology infrastructure for all CSU campuses persist, but the technology gap is now becoming narrower rather than wider. The campus, system and individual data collection activities associated with this report have been institutionalized throughout the system. A structure and process have been established, and the quality of the data should improve over time as refinements are made to them. In both breadth and depth, information technology has permeated every important facet of the modern university, academic or administrative. The issues and the data reviewed in this report indicate clearly that a technology infrastructure is a prerequisite for quality and productivity in the digital age. The CSU Information Technology Strategy is a comprehensive blueprint for infusing technology into the curriculum as well as administrative systems. The ITS provides an effective planning framework and strategy for exploiting the efficiencies offered by technology while improving quality and meeting the enrollment demands of the next two decades. For the first time, the system is moving toward standardization and consensus on a wide range of important conceptual and technical issues. The Measures of Success process requires that operational definitions be agreed upon to support both data collection and development of a common language for describing success. The Measures of Success accountability model presented here goes far beyond the metrics themselves. It is an implicit recognition that information technology is the crucial infrastructure of the 21st Century, similar to the role that a physical infrastructure played in previous eras
