Measurable Outcome(s)

I feel our target was achieved. Since learning that we received this grant I have had people inquire if the new machine was here. As it wasn't here yet, I got their names and phone numbers to call when the new microfilm reader was installed. Since we have installed this new machine-less than a week from installation day-we have had 3 people come in to use the machine. They are very impressed and excited to use it. I know they are sharing with their family and friends that we have our new microfilm reader. The more the news is spread the more people will be coming in to use it.
