L&S Department SwapList
Following is an email listserv for departments within the College to facilitate the transfer of used furniture and computer equipment to other departments within the College.
As a result of concerns expressed by the Classified Staff Issues Committee (CSIC) a few years ago about the limited ability of some departments to purchase new furniture or computer equipment for their staff, the College initiated an email listserv for departments within the College to facilitate the transfer of used furniture and computer equipment to other departments within the College. The primary intent of the computer equipment portion of this exchange is to provide a mechanism for departments that have the means to purchase new equipment to give their used equipment to a department that does not have the means to purchase new equipment. The important thing here is that the transferred machine needs to be able to run Windows 7. Computers that do not meet minimum hardware requirements and/or non-working machines should be sent directly to UW SWAP. The hardware requirements for Windows 7 can be found at:
This equipment/furniture transfer process is for business use only. The equipment and furniture cannot be transferred for personal use.
To participate: If your department has computer equipment or furniture that is being upgraded and/or is no longer being used, send the descriptive information in an email to Allen Gierhart (email@example.com) in L&S Administration. She will review the request and forward it on to the email listserv.
