Project Title: Continuation of Free Printing for Students Using the NDS
Award number: 0308
Project Leader: Mark England
Report Period: Mid-year
This plan addressed the need for quality printing for students from public computers in the NDSU Libraries. A majority of NDSU students use library printers to print articles from electronic journals, bibliographic databases, and World Wide Web resources.
The Libraries have nine laser printers (including one color laser printer) that are used by students and other library users. Most of these laser printers were purchased with funds from the student technology fee program. The NDSU Libraries received 17,400.00 to purchase paper and toner for public printers. Some of the award money was used to fund repairs on existing laser printers and to purchas a new printer for the Health Sciences Library.
The $17,400 in technology fee funds will allow the Libraries to continue offering students high-quality laser printing.
