Earlier this year, Google Calendar started automatically including a Hangout (video conference) link in every calendar event.

Many faculty and staff in Brown departments currently use Department File Services to share files with others in their departments and back up files (instead of keeping them on local hard drives, which can lead to data loss). Over the next month, CIS will be upgrading the technology behind Department File Services to provide an improved experience, reliability, and more space.
