We develop solutions for digital workflows, preservation, and discovery of collections and research data.

Notre Dame has a unique spirit. It is traditional, yet open to change. It is dedicated to religious belief no less than scientific knowledge. It has always stood for values in a world of facts.

Notre Dame is one of the few universities to regularly rank in the top 25 in the U.S. News & World Report survey of America’s best colleges. And for the past 4 years we’ve ranked among the top IT places to work according to Computer World.
