The Technology Centers

In keeping with the charge to encourage an open relationship between teachers and the instructional technology resources available to them, Emory University offers resource centers, instructional technology support, and desktop and hardware support through the Center for Library and Information Resources (CLAIR) and Woodruff Library's joint Technology Centers.

The Technology Centers are composed of the Beck Center, the Electronic Data Center and Emory’s Center for Interactive Teaching (ECIT).
