Sean O'Malley  

Returning students, faculty and staff who need technical support have several options during the 2011 fall opening, September 1 through 6.

OITECH online answers and work requests - 24 hours a day

The OITECH site also includes a public, searchable question-and-answer knowledge base.  Once a request has been answered, it automatically gets added to the knowledge base.
