TI Award: Upgrade from Copier to Copier-Scanner

Technology Improvement Award: Upgrade from Copier to Copier-Scanner to VA Illiana Health Care System Library, Illinois, for $4,520, November 1, 2005 ? April 30, 2006. The VAIHCS library has seen an increase in the number of articles that have been requested, printed, and distributed. As VAIHCS is a medical facility and governmental institution, we have also seen a change in the number of article requests that we get from other facilities. The document center would allow the library to scan the Table of Contents from all professional journals and transmit them to their e-mail accounts. Staff would make more journal requests, receive e-copies of the requested articles and be better informed ? allowing them to provide better patient care to our nation?s veterans.
