We made a decision to attach printers to about half of our OPAC terminals ( we
still have OPAC; we are currently in the process of implementing Webpac). We
made this decision in order to be environmentally friendly and in order to speed
things along--it is quicker to jot down a call number than to print every entry.
This has not been a problem for our patrons who seem to like the little pencils
we supply. We are in the process of evaluating printer setups for Webpac, which
will be networked. I'll let you know what we decide.
