Three Cheers for Broken Arrow School Board!

Three Cheers for Broken Arrow School Board! | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

"It is totally appropriate for residents to submit a complaint if they wish their voice to be heard. And its harder for school board members, administrators, librarians and teachers to do the right thing and see a challenge through. It would be easy to say, “Ok, fine,” and acquiesce to the complaints of a loud objector (see: Sumner County, TN) and make the problem go away. The latter choice, however, treads on the rights of others to make up their own minds about what they read and how they parent."

MTSU Profile by GoPrint

"Middle Tennessee State University is one of GoPrint’s oldest customers. David Robinson, Systems Librarian at the University, has been running GoPrint in the University’s library computer labs starting in the old Andrew L. Todd Library building in 1996 and then moved into the new James E. Walker Library in 1999."

 

Not dated so not sure if it's current but some interesting history here about library printing systems.  Was it MTSU that had the paper art display?
