This document represents a major component of Nevada's Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC) strategic planning activities and elaborates on the technology functions found in the college strategic plan. Information resources at TMCC are grouped into five areas: (1) administrative computing, the area of information processing that supports the operations of the college as a business; (2) instructional technology, which directly supports students, faculty, and staff in fulfilling the instructional mission of the college. The primary components of instructional technology at TMCC include computer labs, computer-assisted instruction, smart classroom technology, evaluation and group response systems, multimedia tools, and global and local information resources; (3) distance education, defined as a planned teaching/learning experience that uses a wide spectrum of electronic technologies to reach learners at a distance; (4) library services, which consist of a diverse and evolving collection of electronic and traditional resources that students, faculty and staff use to perform research and augment instruction; and (5) infrastructure--the intersection of the other four components, and the "support group" for all equipment and training. The document includes budget summaries for the years 2000 and 2002, as well as a budget detail. Appended are a list of acronyms and the TMCC strategic plan. (CB)
