Abstract: Lighting talk about the methods WCU Hunter Library uses to assign new computers to library staff/faculty when money is tight or given at just the end of the fiscal year. Ellern used a “replacement measure method” that assigns an application level and a replacement cycle calculation number to each need to make this replacement cycle fair to the employees of the library. The presentation also shows the uneven nature of computer replacement at Hunter Library between 2001-2009.
