Do you want to find ways to make it easier and cheaper to set up, improve, or simply maintain your public library computers or training lab?
Register for our free webinar
on Thursday, February 21 at 11 a.m. Pacific time to find out find out about the TechSoup donation that could make your life easier and extend your tech budget at the same time! Microsoft's Windows MultiPoint Server
can save you over 60% in costs and upkeep.
What is Windows MultiPoint Server? Basically it allows one computer to serve several people in a lab or library with very low cost and is very easy to maintain. You don't need server administration experience or dedicated IT staff. You can even repurpose old computers. This software is now available as a donation from TechSoup and also at very low cost from the Microsoft Registered Refurbisher Program.
Join Joy Neal and Lane Fernando from the rural La Conner Regional Library
in Washington to hear about their experience installing Multipoint Server (in less than an hour!) and how it works for maintaining their computers.
You will also find out how to install, set-up and obtain the hardware you need for a Multipoint Server lab from Charles Brennick, nonprofit refurbisher from InterConnection
in Seattle. InterConnection is one of two refurbishment partners in TechSoup's Refurbished Computer Initiative and worked with us recently to install and test Multipoint Server in two libraries and three charities.
