The Computers on Wheels project began at the College of St. Catherine as a collaborative venture between the Dean of Education and the McGlynn Computer and Technology Center. We in Computing Services were interested in finding out how a wireless network (LAN) could function in a classroom building. Faculty members in the Education Department were interested in experimenting with the use of laptop computers in teaching and learning. At the same time, we made the decision to set up similar equipment in the library for checkout from the Circulation Desk to use within the building to do a variety of research related tasks such as word processing, printing, and Internet access.
