Retired Computer Room Equipment Sold, Resources Used Towards Supporting Instruction

As part of an effort to take advantage of the life of computer equipment retired from computer labs, Computer Lab Management transferred or sold 155 computers and 16 peripherals between May and September of 2002. A majority of the equipment was processed for sale through the campus Bargain Barn, which sells items to other UC Davis departments and non-university organizations or individuals. The equipment is between four and five years old and has resided most of its life in highly utilized public computer rooms. In the interest of keeping technology current in its 15 computer classrooms, labs, and media rooms, Computer Lab Management typically retires equipment at the end of its third year. Proceeds from the sale of the equipment will be used towards supplies and/or equipment to support instruction.
