Upcoming Webinar: How the UCLA Library Provides Virtual Services to Staff and the General Campus

Is anything real anymore, or is it all smoke and mirrors?

The UCLA Library provides virtual applications and desktops to library staff, and virtual applications to campus through the Campus Library Instructional Computing Commons’ (CLICC) Software Shortcut.

Leveraging a virtual infrastructure allows them to create a work from an “anywhere with almost any device” environment. Faculty can teach classes with software from anywhere with students using their own laptops.

This webinar will cover the background of the two environments, realistic expectations, the soft and human costs, and why you should consider trying it. Of course, it will be a continuous live demonstration.
