The Furman ITS Service Catalog is part of an initiative to implement Information Technology service management best practices for Furman University. Work on these service catalog descriptions is in-process.
We started creating the Furman ITS Service Catalog using service descriptions found in:
Steinberg, R. A. Servicing ITIL: a Handbook of IT Services for ITIL Service Managers and Practitioners, Trafford Publishing; Victoria, BC, Canada; 2007.
Additional information on Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) best practices can be found in:
Behr, K., Kim, G., Spafford, G. The Visible Ops Handbook: Implementing ITIL in 4 Practical and Auditable Steps, IT Process Institute; Eugene, Oregon; 2005.
EDUCAUSE also provides a number of resources on how higher education uses ITIL concepts and policies to improve information technology service management.
