About Library IT

Library IT provides multiple IT-related services to the Yale Library and the Yale community. The staff supports a variety of library-wide systems, including the integrated library system (Orbis), interlibrary loan, e-reserves, special collections, and the library website. The department maintains over 800 workstations, plus a growing number of mobile devices. Library IT also maintains almost a petabyte of storage, and approximately 80 servers, virtual and physical. In addition to maintaining the library's computers, webpages, and infrastructure, much of the work in the department is project based. Library IT projects are initiated to provide the Yale community with seamless and transparent access to the library's rich resources, including physical, electronic, and digitized materials. Custom programming projects are also undertaken in support of digital collections and improved search and discovery tools. Through the development of these projects and other initiatives, Library IT will provide the Yale community with a high level of service on par with peer academic institutions.
