Requester Name: Elijah Scott
Project Description: 16 new computers for Cartersville Campus Library, to be placed in public area of the library for student access.
Suggested Date for Implementation: Jul 31, 2012
From a student perspective: How would this project provide additional student access to technological resources?
Currently, there are only 8 computers in the public area of the Cartersville Campus Library. When the library classroom is in use, the classroom computers are not available to students. Students have repeatedly requested additional computers in the Library. The most recent PASS survey documented numerous requests for more computers.

How would this project broaden or enhance the quality of the student's academic experience through the proposed technology?
This project would provide students with greater access to computers in the library. Not only would this expand opportunities for online research, but these machines would offer more options for class projects which require word processing, excel, powerpoint, or other computer-based technology.

How would this project integrate technology into coursework?
Almost all coursework now requires computer access for successful completion. These computers would provide students with additional resources to successfully complete assignments.

From a faculty/staff perspective: Will other departments be involved with this project? If so, please describe.
Information technology will purchase and install these computers.

Has any part of this project previously been funded by STF?
yes

If you answered yes, please describe:


Costs: Estimated Cost of Project: $20,288 (at

Are there any related or additional costs associated with the project? If so, please describe:
Not to my knowledge. Networking and wiring, as well as furniture, are already in place.

Are there any ongoing costs such as maintenance fees? If so, please describe: Standard software licensing fees, etc.
