Measurable Outcome(s)

Measureable Outcomes were reached. We were not able to provide our patrons with quality, readable records from the old equipment that we were using.Now we are able to send them their requests via e-mail within a reasonable time not having to wait days for it to come in the postal service mail. We can change the size of the print so that it is in a readable format for everyone, including those with vision problems. Patrons can save to their own flash drive, or CD, Photos, articles, ads, legal documents etc. are enhanced in a way we couldn't before.
