Help for New (and not so new) Faculty

Stanford has a wealth of information technology resources, but determining how to access these resources requires both knowledge of exactly what one wants and how to find it.

A possible starting point is the Computing and Communication web page, a comprehensive portal to technology resources at Stanford:

A somewhat more specialized site, the Faculty Quick Guide to Computing and Communication Resources at Stanford University has been developed specifically for faculty:

The Faculty Quick Guide organizes important information relevant to faculty members' particular needs: using technology for teaching and research, identifying and obtaining computer and instructional support, and adapting new tools and technologies for personal productivity.

If you're new to Stanford -- or just newly interested in how technology might enhance your work or enable you to do something you couldn't do before -- the Faculty Quick Guide could very well be the right place to start.
