TechSoup Global: Springing into Action

TechSoup Global has had a busy year so far with new ventures, exciting contests, and global recognition. Here's a peek into what we've been up to:

La Conner Regional Library: Windows MultiPoint Server Case Study

Microsoft's Windows MultiPoint Serverthin-client or shared-resource-computing software solution in which one host computer is shared by multiple users simultaneously. Basically, it allows one computer to serve several people in a lab or library at very low cost and with minimum maintenance. Find out more in our upcoming webinar, Lower Your Public Access PC Lab Costs.
