Projects associated with IDRE are multi-disciplinary, grant funded, and based partially or wholey out of the Sandbox.
Through the GIS & Visualization group, IDRE provides both facilities and expertise in GIS and database support, digital media, visualization, and three-dimensional modeling. Dedicated to advancing digital research and scholarship, the GIS & Visualization works with a number of other campus organizations with complementary mandates:
- The Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) seeks to advance the research, teaching, and public service mission of the Humanities Division through the use of computing technology and new media. CDH coordinates and supports faculty research and teaching projects that employ these technologies by helping focus such projects, locating personnel and funding, discovering partners both inside and outside the university, and managing the projects over time.
- The UCLA Digital Library Program (DLP) serves as the catalyst for the creation, management, and delivery of digital content in support of the UCLA Library mission and goals. The Program provides for the storage and dissemination of digital objects, including text, images, audio, and video in their various digital manifestations and combinations. The UCLA Library provides a web presence for digital collections, and provides storage, backup and digital preservation support for all digital content accepted into, or developed by, the Library.
- The Experiential Technologies Center (ETC) promotes the use of new technologies for experiential research in diverse disciplines including architecture, the performing arts, classics, archaeology, foreign language studies, and education.
- The Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR) promotes interdisciplinary research on a broad spectrum of contemporary sociological, psychological, political, and economic problems and community issues. The Institute directly administers interdisciplinary research centers and programs, most of which sponsor conferences and working paper series. In addition, ISSR serves as home to a large archived collection of social science data.
- The UCLA Office of Instructional Development (OID) supports the instructional mission of the University and enhances teaching and learning opportunities. Through grants, programs and services OID promotes the effective use of current and emerging instructional methodologies and technologies.
- UCLA’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) is responsible for campus wide information technology planning and policy, governance structures, stewardship of campus initiatives, and the Office of the UCLA Chief Privacy Officer.
