Green Initiatives:

As part of Library Technology’s ongoing commitment to efficient use of technology resources, recycling, and power savings,  since January 2007, approximately 200 of the library’s computers have been configured to automatically shut-down for a minimum of 50-70 hours per week (with longer shut down times during winter breaks, summer and intersession periods). An estimate of the power savings to the university since program inception in 2007 is:

Savings Per Month

 

Savings To Date

(January 2007 - April 2014)

Since late 2008, the library labs and employees have been using 100% recycled paper
CTS has participates in programs for the sustainable recycling of toner cartridges, small electronics, and "paper mining" (re-using used paper).

Desktop Security:

Security for the desktops in the open lab is implemented in layers, which provides a more comprehensive, yet less intrusive protection over the workstations while allowing library patrons the use of standard Windows interface features. The security system is intended to protect the open lab PC’s and the network from innocent blunders and malicious experimentation.
