26 Gear to Geaux History   The program was started in 2003   The initial program only had 12 laptops and 50 wireless cards.   The items were circulated by ITS and students could only use the laptops for two hours and could not leave the library.   In 2005 we partnered with the library to have them circulate the items and they could collect and keep the fines revenue.   In Fall of 2005 we added 10 additional laptops and changed the circulation to allow students to check them out for up to three days with one renewal.   In January 2006 we acquired 50 IBM laptops from those donated in support of hurricane Katrina recovery efforts. ITS decided to put these machines into the library circulation program. This was a big hit.   In the Fall of 2006 we replaced the twelve additional machines, but with 6 windows compatible machines and 6 ibooks. We also added digital cameras and camcorders.   In the Fall of 2007 we added 6 additional ibooks and 6 new windows machines.   The program continues to be nearly 100 percent checked out on any given day.
