Dave, I only know what I just now read by following your link below, but
it looks pretty interesting. Would love for  you to share your findings
after you attend the meeting.

Thinking about implementing Office 365 for staff here at FPL (looks
beneficial), wondering how we would deal with patron computers. Right
now, we license all our Microsoft through the Academic Volume Licensing
program and pay an annual subscription. We put the same version of
everything on both staff and public computers. The features of Office
365 don't seem to be needed and might be an impairment on a shared
public computer...I'd be interested in whether the people pushing 365
have thought about that issue for libraries/schools.

Is anyone using Microsoft Office 365 for Non-Profits?  We have been
approached by a patron who is a PMP with Microsoft and is promoting it
as a way to reduce our tech costs.  Here's a link to an article from
Techsoup on Office 365 for Non-Profits:  




I'm curious as to what others know about this.  I plan to attend an
event this Friday morning and thought I'd gather ideas and/or questions
from this group to take with me, so please share!
