Support for Third Party Printers and PeripheralsA wide variety of computer peripherals (printers, hard drives, etc.) cost less
than $500 and are often purchased directly by departments, rather than by CIS.
CIS sells some peripherals through the Computer Store. Staff and faculty are
advised to consult with the Store or other CIS departments before purchasing
peripherals with Reed funds. If the Store does not offer a suitable product,
CIS may be able to recommend one that will work well with the Reed computing
environment and is most supportable by CIS staff.
It is rarely cost-effective to repair inexpensive peripherals. CIS staff can
assist you in determining options for repair or replacement, but CIS generally
will not cover the cost of repairs.
