Implementing tools for collaboration across boundaries

Audience: All
Technical Level: Low

In the last 12 months, the Marquette Law School Media and Technology group has adopted several software tools and several administrative practices to promote collaboration. Technologists provide the foundation and framework, librarians provide the subject expertise, and professors reap the benefits. We are using both commercial software products and free web services. We have combined social bookmarking & RSS to identify and distribute relevant content. We have also turned our blog into a collaboration point for technology staff with different responsibilities and reporting structure.

Products discussed: Microsoft Sharepoint, Microsoft Corporate Communicator, del.icio.us, furl.net, airset.com, WordPress, RSS Bandit
