We have recently launched new websites for Information Technology Services, the Provost, and MiddCORE. The new ITS site includes new features like a newsroom for an office, automatic system status monitoring, calculation of ticket stats from our Web Helpdesk system, and service point hours fed from Google Calendar.

The Course Hub has received several improvements this week including site-search, a MIIS ERES connection, resource-editing improvements, and some bug fixes. See below for details.
