March 29, 2010 | In February, a new type of organizational unit spanning NCAR and UCP came onto the scene. Integrated Information Services (IIS), which brings together library and information research, development, and operations formerly located in the NCAR Library and UCP’s Digital Learning Sciences (DLS), is intended to support UCAR’s efforts to manage, preserve, and provide access to the organization’s scholarship and intellectual assets.
“We believe that this partnership will allow the NCAR Library to better respond to the current and future information needs of NCAR, UCP, and the larger UCAR community, while providing new audiences for DLS services and technologies,” says IIS director Mary Marlino.
The NCAR Library’s name and services remain unchanged, and the Library Board continues to provide advice on library initiatives and services. DLS remains a UCP program.
