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 Library public desktop PCs and laptops are all in constant, heavy use.  All of the Boca Raton cmapus library laptops for check-out to students are now out of warranty.  We are requesting funds for replacing 50 of these laptops, as well as for additional batteries.

Of the 182 public desktop PCs we are requesting to be replaced, 50 are now out of warranty, and 132 more will be out of warranty by June, 2013.  The majority of warranties expire in February and March of 2013, and 10 more will expire between April and June, 2013.  The PCs to replaced are located in the Reference area, lobby, Alumni Alcove, Media Center, alcoves on the upper floors, and the instructor and student PCs in the library instruction lab.

At Jupiter, the 33 public PCs we need to replace ar all out of warranty. 15 PCs are currently maintained by the FAU Libraries Systems Dept., and 18 are maintained by OIT is the library's computer lab and just outside of it.

5. How is this project aligned with the Strategic Plan? Please site specific goals and strategies.
 

This project meets Goal I, by helping to assure access to our resources.  The Libraries are one of the essential areas on campus where students depend upon computer access not only to use our resources but to do a wide variety of other things such as enrollment in courses.  This project is essential to Goal 5, building and maintaining a state of the art information technology environment.
