Technology Services

Example: "The school library provides multiple technology services that allow students to access information."

Technology services are services that make use of modern technology. Examples include Internet service providers (ISPs), Web hosts, and technical support companies. Since many technology services are related to information technology, they are sometimes called "information technology services," or ITS. However, other services like graphic design, audio/video production, and scientific engineering also fall under the scope of technology services. Therefore, while technology services are often related to IT, they may be associated with other forms of technology as well.
