Highlights publication 2015

The work of IT Services covers a wide range of service provision, as well as projects and programmes to introduce new services, upgrade infrastructure and bring innovative IT to the University. We have created a 'Highlights’ publication which is intended to give a taster of the range of our activities since full coverage would be impossible. The aim is to show something of what is going on so staff and students can better understand the services available and how IT Services can support them in their administrative work, teaching, learning and research. You can download the online version of the publication below.

There are also a limited number of printed versions of the publication. If you would like a copy, please email the Communications Team.

Associated with the ‘Highlights’ publication are a number of videos which give an extra insight into IT provision at the University. These are presented below and there are click-through links within the online publication.
