AAMC Mailing Lists

AAMC mailing lists are available for sharing valuable information and resources with our member institutions and constituents.

GIR Education Technology Work Group

The Educational Technology working group is responsible for informing GIR members and the AAMC on education technology issues, trends and related infrastructure as well as interfacing with AAMC groups (GSA, GIP, GEA) and other external groups (EDUCAUSE, etc.). The working group may also be tasked with responding to emerging education technology issues. The working group will be comprised of GIR members who have an interest in and knowledge of education technology infrastructure. One member should come from the library community while the rest are drawn from the members at large.
