More People, Not Just More Stuff: Developing a New Vision for Research Cyberinfrastructure
Distribution is by the permission of EDUCAUSE
The iSchool is creating a program to educate and train a new breed of information professional. The program will focus on using current information infrastructure as it emerges. It will teach students to excel in the "three I's"-information, infrastructure, and improvisation. Such a program must also provide students with the research skills they require to discover the needs of information users and how to adapt available technology to satisfy those needs.
