More users / visitors in spring & fall, few summer, no winter.
Users / visitors peaked in early 1990s, steady since 1998.
Technology available throughout the rest of the campus.
Scantron usage: mild increase.
Text scanner: mild increase.
Slide scanner: variable, statistically flat.
Color printer use, Audio tape duplication, software, and hardware help
have all decreased over time.
Transparency printing is almost non-existent. Jim Edwards said there is
really only one person who produces transparencies.
- The number of consultant interventions has remained constant since
2002 at around 200.
