Center for Global Change Science
The Center for Global Change Science (CGCS) seeks to better
understand the fundamental processes and mechanisms controlling
the global environment. The interdisciplinary Center, founded in
1990, utilizes theory and observations of oceanic, atmospheric,
and terrestrial systems, to improve the ability to accurately
predict global environmental change. Two major activities of the
CGCS are the Climate Modeling Initiative, and the Joint Program
on the Science and Policy of Global Change.
The CGCS collection in DSpace contains over 100 reports from
1994 to the present.
Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change Reports
This report series communicates research results, and provides
useful reviews and commentaries on various aspects of the global
climate change issue.
Center for Innovation in Product Development (CIPD)
A joint effort between MIT’s School of Engineering and

Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL)
CSAIL was formed by the merger of MIT’s Laboratory for
Computer Science (LCS) and the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
(AI). It is an interdepartmental laboratory which includes
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science(http://www.eecs.mit.edu/),
Brain and Cognitive Science(http://web.mit.edu/bcs/),
Aeronautics and Astronautics(http://web.mit.edu/aeroastro/www/),
the Biological Engineering Division(http://web.mit.edu/be/),
and the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology(http://hst.mit.edu/).
CSAIL is also the home of the World Wide Web Consortium(http://www.w3c.org).
The primary mission of CSAIL is research in both computation
and artificial intelligence, broadly construed. It is organized
into four broad research areas: 1. Architecture, systems, and
networks. 2.Theory. 3.Language, learning, vision, and graphics.
4. Physical, biological, and computational systems.
CSAIL collections in DSpace include over 1000 technical
reports from 1959 to the present.
Department of Ocean Engineering
The goal of MIT’s Department of Ocean Engineering is to
develop the knowledge and technology to foster and enable the
wise and effective use, development, and preservation of the
ocean, its natural resources and environment.
Collections in DSpace include:
Department of Political Science
Focused initially on international issues, particularly in the
area of security, MIT’s Department of Political Science has
more recently grown in three main directions. First, a large
number of faculty members now specialize in American politics.
Second, the Department has developed considerable strength in
political economy, both comparative and international. And third,
it has extended its coverage of comparative politics by adding
faculty members specializing in Europe, Japan, the Middle East,
South Asia, and Latin America.
