Vanderbilt Research IT Service
The Vanderbilt Research IT Service developed out of recommendations from the working group, aims to provide research consultation and technical solutions to research driven information technology problems.
The Research IT Working Group has completed and proposed recommendations for VU Research IT service to be implemented 2018-2019 by the new Research IT Faculty Advisory Committee. The report recommendations can be viewed here.
Our goal is to connect end-to-end our users with support services to ensure researchers have solutions for their information technology research problems. As we develop these services we appreciate your feedback and suggestions. As the service is currently constructed, the following resources are available:
- Resource Guide
- Short-Term Consultation and Programming
- High Performance Computing and Storage Solutions
Research IT: information technology resources that directly impact research, this is different from other campus IT infrastructure.There are four distinct IT areas represented at Vanderbilt:
Given the wide range of research methods and workflows across the university, combined with the sheer number of technical areas where assistance might be needed, we expect a series of customizable solutions will need to be developed. As we begin tracking solutions and needs across campus, we will build on this effort to create flexible, transferable approaches to research IT consultation that will address varied needs across the university, avoid redundancy of efforts, and encourage faculty to develop common solutions and work with third-party IT services, where necessary, in ways that contribute to the development of sustainable and effective research IT solutions at Vanderbilt.
