Administrative Systems

A number of administrative systems are used to support the work of the University. Some of these systems include: Banner, Avow, Axiom, DARS, Argos, Cognos, Nolij, 25Live, and QAS.

Antivirus and security software

Lehigh strongly recommends that all users protect their computer by installing a recommended Antivirus program.

Faculty/Staff Lehigh-Owned Computers

Apple Device Management: Jamf Pro

In order to manage and secure the university's information assets on Apple devices, LTS uses Jamf Pro. This system allows LTS to facilitate managed full disk encryption on those systems and ensure security standards in much the same way that Active Directory does for Windows-based systems.  It also enables an updated inventory of active systems and their installed software, in order to be apprised of the security status of those programs.

ASA Library Catalog

The Lehigh Libraries are most quickly and conveniently searched using the 'ASA Library Catalog'.  Full information is available on the relevant Library Site Page.

Assisted Website Development with WordPress

WordPress is an open-source website/blog creation tool that allows users to develop their own websites without code using a rich set of hosted tools.  It is one of the most well-known and easy-to-use blogging platforms and content management systems (CMS) available.  LTS recommends this service for the development of academic-focused projects by Lehigh staff, faculty and students.


Banner is the integrated information system used by Lehigh to support business processes. The Banner system manages student information, accounts receivable, financial aid, alumni/advancement, finance, and human resources. Banner may be accessed using Application Navigator or Banner Self-Service (SSB).


Library & Technology Services provides personal and group calendars through Google Calendar, which is available at Training on Google Calendar is available through LTS (see the LTS seminar schedule for more information). The 25Live Room Scheduling calendar is used for reserving University spaces such as classrooms and conference rooms.


Closed captioning was created for the hearing-impaired community to assist in comprehension. It can also be used as a tool by those learning to read, learning to speak a non-native language, or in an environment where the audio is difficult to hear or is intentionally muted. Captions can also be used by viewers who simply wish to read a transcript along with the program audio.

Classic 'Static' Web Hosting

All Lehigh computing accounts include space on Lehigh’s basic HTML web server, but to use it, users must write their own HTML, CSS and Javascript code, and upload or save their files to that storage space. Functionality and tools there are more limited than on other web services, but fully custom-coded by the user.

See the ‘Static Webspace Overview’ to get started.

Classroom Technology and Public Computers

Classroom Technology Support provides and maintains classroom equipment in direct support of the teaching and learning mission of the university.

For Registrar Classrooms and LTS Public Computer Sites, the Classroom Technology Support (CTS) Team is charged with:

Collaboration with Confluence

Confluence is a commercial, web-based bulletin board system, or wiki. It's particularly well-suited to standing committees, project teams, or research groups that need to provide a central repository for collecting and sharing information regarding ongoing projects. The system can provide a highly granular level of access control and capabilities to individual users, as well as publish information to the entire Web.

Computer File Storage

One of the most fundamental issues when using computers, especially in a large organization, is simply where to store the files you create. There are numerous considerations that go into deciding the best location in which to store your data. The most basic differentiation of those options is by their physical location. All Lehigh users are strongly advised to become familiar with the options described in detail in the links below.

Computer Labs / Computing Sites

Computer Labs (also known as public computing sites), are available in various buildings across campus. Most computer labs provide access to PCs or Macs, printers, and areas for collaborative work and study. Some departmental computing labs are reserved for use by students and faculty within a specific academic department; these sites may have access to specialized software. Certain computing labs may be reserved for class activities using the Campus Reservation System (25Live).

The guiding principles of the program include academic excellence, convenience, and adherence to best practices for student and faculty support and client satisfaction.

DIY Video Recording Studio

The DIY Video Recording Studio is a video recording space, located in EWFM 522A, where an individual can reserve time and create high-quality video recordings by simply bringing a USB flash drive and pressing a button to start/stop recording. The studio does not require users to have prior video, audio, or lighting knowledge as all of those components have been automated and pre-set for ease-of-use. The studio also features a glass lightboard for presentations featuring front-facing annotation.


The Digital Media Studio maintains an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), most commonly known as a drone. A drone is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. The drone is operated under remote control by a human operator on the ground and can be used for many applications including aerial photography.

Faculty who wish to learn more about utilizing a drone for use in course teaching or research should contact Steve Lichak (sjl4).
