About AISR & JEFFLINE
The mission of Academic & Instructional Support & Resources
(AISR) is to strengthen the educational, research and clinical activities
of the Jefferson community by:
- providing knowledge-based information,
- developing instructional technologies and content,
- providing leadership in scholarly communications and publishing,
- managing the University's learning infrastructure and facilities, and
- integrating learning resources into our educational program.
To accomplish this mission AISR staff provide consultation, instruction, preservation, production and biomedical communication services.
To further our mission, we produce JEFFLINE, the academic and scholarly information system of Thomas Jefferson University; we manage the course information system (Blackboard); and we provide the Jefferson Digital Commons publishing service.
