Measurable Outcome(s)

As described in our application, we expected this new machine to increase our efficiency and allow us to move forward with expanding our microfilm collection. Being able to utilize existing network printers, we have gained efficiency with the need for fewer printers as well as some energy savings with new equipment. In October 2015, we applied for and received a grant to expand our microfilm collection by 123 rolls. This will allow us to offer more resources to patrons utilizing our Research Library.
