1. Date Submitted: 11/12/09 13:20
2. Project Name: KIC System
3. Project Contact Information:

Department:
Libraries
Telephone Number:
5612973717
4. Project Narrative: (Must be tied into what educational benefits will be received by the students, faculty; what goals are going to be achieved etc.)
  The KIC System is a planetary scanner which allows students to digitize book/journal pages, notes, and any other material. It stores this material for a time as determined by the library, and allows the user also to download it to storage devices or e-mail it. This device is in widespread use across the country, and was very popular in the library 2 years ago when we had it on a trial basis, but we did not purchase it because of the cost. It relieves students of the cost of photocopying and allows them to share files with each other, class notes, etc. The machine costs $19,999, plus $2,100/year in maintenance fee.
5. How is this project aligned with the Strategic Plan? Please site specific goals and strategies.
  The KIC System meets Goal 1, providing increased access to higher education, by making library materials of all kinds more shareable and accessible to students at lower cost to them. It certainly also meets Goal 5, that of builidng a state-of-the-art information technology environment, and its objective 4, provision of improved information technology infrastructure and support for University and college research and collaborative projects.
6. Please complete the project cost spreadsheet below. Also, please describe briefly the elements that will be included as noted below:
  a) Any hardware requirements (which should comply with standards established by the IRM Standards)
  This is a purchase of hardware which has been shown to work within the FAU standards and infrastructure.
  b) Any software requirements (which should comply with standards established by the IRM Standards)
  none
  c) Any personnel costs - OPS and other time-limited appointments.
  none
  d) Other:
  annual maintenance contract
7. Provide the proposed timeline fro the project and project end dates:
  Machine can be ordered and installed as soon as funds are available.
8. What is the plan for sustainability of the project beyond the initial project period (if applicable):
  Annual maintenance would become a part of the Libraries' base budget.
9. Provide any resource matching which might be provided by organizations with appropriate commitment authority documentation:
  NA
10. Indicate which organization will implement the project (to help determine any additional costs and resource restraints):
  The Libraries' Systems staff would do whatever minimal work is necessary to help set up the machine.
