Demand for educational programs by BCI staff is increasing, but our current audiovisual equipment is outdated and no longer repairable. This equipment is also essential at our workshops. A Kodak Ektagraphic III Slide Projector (auto focus, 100-150mm zoom lens, and remote control) would be greatly appreciated ($750).
This equipment would greatly enhance our ability to reach a larger audience using BCI videos at environmental fairs, exhibitions, and other special events. Portable TV/ VCR combinations start at $400.
As BCI's conservation programs continue to grow, the need for funding from charitable foundations increases. The foundation directories published by the Foundation Center Libraries are unparalleled resources for grant seekers. The total cost for the 1995 soft-cover editions of The Foundation Directory, Parts 1 and 2, is $350.
BCI's many projects and growing staff are taxing our current file server to the limit. Changes in software requirements, performance, and size are contributing to problems. We would like a system to meet our growing needs for the next five years. Pentium 90, ISA/PCI 16 RAM, 2.2 Gig hard drive, double speed CD ROM ($3,960).
The entire staff thanks Bill and Carole Haber, Beverly Hills, CA, for their help in acquiring a new Minolta copy machine!
