Welcome to the AIS Web Site.

Greetings from Academic Information Services, also known as AIS. As a division within Academic Affairs, AIS provides services and resources to support the teaching, learning, research, and outreach activities of the University.

We live and work in a constantly and rapidly changing world of information and technology. This environment can be challenging yet overwhelming, exciting yet frustrating. As you engage in your studies, research, teaching, and recreational learning, it's important that you be able to navigate successfully the many resources available to you, with as few glitches as possible. Academic Information Services is staffed with professionals truly dedicated to helping you make the most of the resources AIS has to offer.

Each of the five AIS departments has a web site describing services and hours of operation; links are provided to services, forms, and policies to help you make the best use of our resources.

AIS is located in the Harden Learning Resources Center, a cornerstone of the campus academic mall. In addition to providing services to students, AIS has many career enhancing employment opportunities for students, and those seeking a job on campus are encouraged to investigate AIS.

I invite students, faculty, staff, and visitors to meet the people, visit the facilities, and become familiar with the services and resources that make up Academic Information Services.

I also welcome your comments. Feel free to contact the AIS secretary to set up an appointment (906-227-2117). You may also send e-mail messages to me at dwalch@nmu.edu.

Enjoy your time at NMU and enjoy a lifetime of learning!
