Technical, Electronic, & Digital Services IG (TEDSIG)
TEDSIG was founded in 1993 as the Technical Services Interest Group (TSIG). The interest group’s name and scope was changed in June 2007 to Technical, Electronic, and Digital Services Interest Group (TEDSIG) to better reflect the evolving status of the group’s constituents in traditional and emerging technologies. TEDS, a white teddy bear, is the official mascot of TEDSIG.

TEDS, the TEDSIG Mascot
TEDS, the TEDSIG mascot, was the brainchild of TEDSIG member Maureen Walsh (OSU) during a discussion at a TSIG meeting on January 26, 2007 about expanding the interest group's scope beyond technical services to include the fields of electronic resources and systems, and digital services.
