Bucknell Computer Services managed the administrative and academic computing needs of the campus as well as the eventual creation of its network. By 1987, there were four main divisions/areas of work managed by the Director: Communication and Hardware Systems, Computer Systems, Academic Services, and Administrative Systems. Bucknell Computer Services was responsible for monitoring technological developments and implementing computer services that supported both academic and administrative needs. In 1994, Bucknell Computer Services was re-named Computer and Communication Services to better reflect the mission of its work. In August 1997, Computer and Communications Services was merged with library and media services to form a merged technology and information environment service environment under the name, Information Services and Resources.
