Editor's Note Summer break is almost upon us. This IT Times highlights the work Information and Educational Technology will be doing over the summer in preparation for the fall. We also include a rave review of the new book, Evolve! Succeeding in the Digital Culture of Tomorrow, and we highlight some fun Web sites to visit when it's too hot outside to play — and the electricity is still on.

The next IT Times will be the back-to-school issue in late September. During the summer, you can keep up with the latest IET news at http://iet.ucdavis.edu/whatsnew/.

Summer is a very busy time for many administrative units on campus. For Information and Educational Technology (IET), the slower days of summer on campus provide a small window for making improvements and upgrades on existing services and for creating new services and information. Read about some major projects and activities IET will be working on over the summer.

To encourage responsible printing, reduce paper waste, and control costs, the campus has established a new policy to charge for printing in the labs. Starting on June 25, Information and Educational Technology will implement a five cents-per-sheet charge for printing in the campus computer rooms.

sitt photo The eighth annual Summer Institute on Technology in Teaching (SITT) is scheduled for the week of July 23-27 and plans are well underway. Faculty participants will learn about course management systems and multimedia in the classroom, and will gain valuable experience in a number of hands-on workshops.
