Floppy Disks

There is a new batch of MAP PCs soon to go in. This will mean that floppy drives will soon be a lot less common. In the future if a patron has a floppy disk that (s)he needs to read or if any of you need to copy something over after your old PC is gone, I have an external floppy drive that can be plugged in to a USB port. If you would need it when I'm not in my office, then look on the bottom shelf of my white book case (behind my desk).

I am also removing the little box of disks that we had sitting out for the public to take. Eventually, I will clean out the drawer behind the desk with all the floppies in it.

The LTL will have a few PCs with floppy drives for a while yet but has no plans to keep that capability in perpetuity.
