Computer Resources at IU
A variety of computer resources are available to IU students on the Bloomington campus; in fact, IU has consistently been ranked as one of the most "wired" universities in the nation. Computer labs are available in almost every building on campus, providing access to both IBM and Mac formats with extensive software and hardware capabilities. Students also have access to computing classes at no charge through the University Information Technology Service (UITS). Courses provided include word processing, electronic mail, spreadsheets, database management, graphics, presentations, desktop publishing, statistics, and browsing and publishing on the Web.
In addition, through an exclusive agreement with Microsoft, IU students are able to purchase the most popular Microsoft products, including operating systems, desktop productivity tools, and infrastructure server and messaging products at nominal cost. Students are also able to upgrade to the latest versions at no additional cost throughout the life of the agreement (June 30, 2002).
REEIfication is a quarterly newsletter published by the REEI. It contains feature articles and other news about issues in the field and the work of our faculty, students and alumni. It has a circulation of 2,000 and is sent to alumni, associates, affiliates and friends of the institute.
REEI maintains several e-mail lists, which announce REEI events such as guest lectures and conferences, disseminate information regarding course offerings and important dates, and publish job and internship opportunities of interest to our students and alumni.
Workshops and Conferences
REEI and various other units on campus sponsor workshops and conferences for students and faculty throughout the year. These meetings provide young scholars with opportunities to prepare and present papers and network with other students and faculty. Examples of recent topics are: Polonophobia and Polonophilia of the Russians, Beyond the Shtetl: Yiddish Language and Culture in the 20th Century Eastern Europe, Identity Politics in the Former Soviet Union, and Public Opinion in EU Expansion (2004).
