UCOP’s UC Libraries Digital Collection Project wins information technology award
Ten teams across UC won the 2016 Larry L. Sautter Award for using information technology to make university operations more effective and efficient and to better serve faculty, staff, students and patients.
UCOP’s UC Libraries Digital Collection Project was a winner of the Golden Award for enabling all UC libraries to efficiently and cost-effectively create, manage, and make accessible to the public hundreds of thousands of digital assets ranging from historical records and maps to photographs and films. Services include a shared digital asset management system that any campus library may use, a tool to aggregate and index digital content across collections, and an engaging interface called Calisphere that allows the public to discover UC’s archival treasures.
Systemwide Chief Information Officer Tom Andriola announced the winners on Tuesday, July 12, 2016 at the UC Computing Services Conference in Santa Cruz.
The annual award, which is sponsored by the UC Information Technology Leadership Council, recognizes collaborative innovations in IT that advance the university’s missions of teaching, research, public service and patient care, or that improve the effectiveness of university processes. The award encourages collaboration and solution sharing across the UC system.
