I see Calvin College is doing that. They seem to be a big name in tech
among Christian Colleges. I was recently in a webinar where their
CIO/CFO guy shared some things about their strategic planning. They seem
to work together well with the faculty and other departments. That takes
some real intentional work, from what I can tell, and the school has
really benefited. It also helps that their President was highly
supportive of their actions.

That's cool. I'll have to mention this to our library folks to see if
they might be interested in working out some connections.

You can send books to a service who will scan it and send it back so you
don't have to put out for the machine. I hear LOGOS has a bunch of these
machines that they scan books on. The company we talked to said that
they were their heaviest users.
