SCLS support for PCs gifted from an outside Organization

SCLS member libraries may receive financial assistance in the form of PCs provided by a local organization.  The SCLS Technology Team can offer support for these PCs when all the following conditions are met:

Hardware requirements

  • The PCs must be newly purchased, with an SCLS-approved OS license included
  • The PCs must be purchased all at the same time in order to accommodate the installed image created by SCLS
  • The PCs must be at or better than the SCLS current model specs (Intel-based motherboards with Intel processors)
  • The PCs must be designed to run Microsoft Windows natively (PCs are not Apple Macintosh’s, Linux-based PCs, or other Operating system)
  • The PCs must be the identical model

Support Requirements

  • The gifting organization must have a formalized IT department made up of technology professionals that support PCs and technology on a daily basis
  • The Library will be responsible for all coordinated communication between the Library and the organization’s IT department
  • The gifting organization’s IT department is responsible for all hardware support
  • The gifting organization agrees to ship PCs to SCLS Headquarters directly
  • Prior to action, SCLS and the member library will enter into a Memorandum of Understanding, laying out hardware requirements, support requirements, and any other issues in greater detail
