May 23rd, 2012

The new website of Boston University Medical Campus Information Technology (BUMC IT) is now live. The new BUMC IT website, which can be accessed at http://www.bumc.bu.edu/it, offers quick and easy access to information about BUMC IT services and answers to many common technical questions.

The new website features a new WordPress visual theme, better organization of content, and incorporation of social media. Another feature is an advanced search bar that has options to search within BUMC IT’s site as well as within the websites of Information Services and Technology (IS&T), BUMC and all of BU. Ultimately, BUMC IT hopes that the new website will promote easier access to answers for common technical questions.

The website redesign is one of several initiatives BUMC IT is taking to make information more available to the Medical Campus community. BUMC IT is now present on popular social media sites including Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/bumcit) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/bumcit), which can provide up to the minute information that will be easier to broadcast and available if BU services are ever down. BUMC IT social media pages will provide immediate information about known issues and service outages, as well as useful technical tips. In addition, BUMC IT is developing new marketing brochures that can serve as a quick reference guide for common IT issues on the Medical Campus.

Visit the new website at http://www.bumc.bu.edu/it. BUMC IT welcomes users to submit feedback about the site through the “Feedback” link, which is located on the bottom of every page. For additional questions or comments about the new website, contact the BUMC IT Service Desk at (617) 638-5914 or bumchelp@bu.edu.

BUMC IT aspires to provide the highest quality of service to facilitate, support, and advance the missions of the BU Medical Campus community through the application of information technology. The Service Desk is the single point of contact for questions and inquiries. Learn more about BUMC IT at http://www.bumc.bu.edu/it.
