The Library Systems Department supports information technology used throughout the UO Libraries, both by library staff and library patrons. The twelve members of the department maintain computer hardware and software for approximately 310 computers and laptops used by the library's patrons, more than 350 staff computers, and computers used in library classrooms and manage the Computer Help desk in the Knight Library Learning Commons.
Department staff maintain and support a large suite of servers, including Web servers; staff application and file servers; digital data storage servers; the integrated library system used for the library catalog; application servers running FindText and providing access to the library's databases; and Pharos, the campus pay for print system. Staff also provide primary technical support for the Blackboard application, the campus course management system.
The department manages the library's web site and access to the library's collection of electronic resources, including databases, electronic journals and digital collections.
Library Systems provides technical support for the Center for Media and Educational Technologies; Scholarly Communications and Instructional Support; and the Orbis Cascade Alliance.
Systems offices are located on the west side of the first floor of the Knight Library (Room 132).
