1. Date Submitted: 11/12/09 17:03
2. Project Name: Multimedia PCs and software
3. Project Contact Information:

Department:
Libraries
Telephone Number:

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.)
  Many academic libraries now provide multimedia PCs, VCR/DVDs, microphones, and associated hardware and software with which students can incorporate video, audio, and data, from library resources and from the open internet, into papers and presentations. The University of Miami library, for instance, has a multi-media editing suite for students. We would like to create such an opportunity for FAU students. All necessary hardware and software can be purchased (minus the PCs) for $9,360; two iMacs would cost a further $2,736, including a 3-year service agreement. It seems a small price to pay for the chance to offer this to our students.
5. How is this project aligned with the Strategic Plan? Please site specific goals and strategies.
  This project supports Goal 2, meeting statewise professional and workforce needs, and especially Objective 5, by helping to train students for transition competitively into the workforce; it also supports Goal 5, building a state-of-the-art information technology environment, Objective 1, providing adequate funding to maintain IT infrastructure necessary for instruction, research, and other creative activities.
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)
  Equipment proposal from KlassTech Presentation Solutions specifies necessary hardware, none of which is out of IRM standards.
  b) Any software requirements (which should comply with standards established by the IRM Standards)
  Complies with IRM standards.
  c) Any personnel costs - OPS and other time-limited appointments.
  none
  d) Other:
  Minor modification of an enclosed public area will be necessary, but no cost estimate is available at this time.
7. Provide the proposed timeline fro the project and project end dates:
  The space modification can be initiated if the project is approved; equipment can be delivered quickly after that, so implementation would probably take 2-3 months, depending on Facilities' ability to respond.
8. What is the plan for sustainability of the project beyond the initial project period (if applicable):
  This would be folded into the Libraries' ongoing instructional and equipment expenditures.
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 will implement the project.
