The conference will offer engaging plenary speakers, technical as well as personal growth presentations by professionals from across the country, a poster session where you can share your successes and lessons, opportunities to interact with vendors to learn more about their products, as well as plenty of time to talk with colleagues about issues of the day and challenges of the future.

Hope to see you in sunny St. Pete where you and the sun shine!

Using FAQs to Help Users Help Themselves

Four years ago, UMBC’s “tier 1” Technology Support Center (formerly Help Desk) moved from the obscure basement of our main Division of Information Technology (DoIT) building to the bright, open first floor of our new Information Commons in the Library. Since then, the TSC has virtually reinvented itself by also focusing on helping users help themselves. We completely revamped our campus knowledgebase that has grown from 3k annual page views to more than 400k. As a result, support phone calls have been reduced 30% and ticket volume has decreased 3% (since FY10) or remained flat while all other campus support requests have skyrocketed through widespread adoption of our RT (Request Tracker) ticketing system.
