2012 Grant Highlight: KIC Scanner

"The day it was installed, students at the Cox School of Business started using the new KIC BookEdge Plus scanner made possible by a generous grant from Friends of the Library. Comments have already been made about how great the new scanner is. The business library is thrilled to be able to offer this upgraded service."
