USB Flash Drives for Patron PCs

2 GB Kingston Data Traveler A new edition has been added to the biannual coordinated order.  USB flash drives can now be purchased for around 6 to 8 dollars each.  We just completed a coordinated order a few weeks ago so you will have to wait until January to get in on the next one.  If you don't want to wait that long you can order your own. We purchased the 2 GB Kingston Data Traveler from CDWG. Something to be aware of if purchasing USB flash drives for your library to loan or sell to your patrons is to avoid getting drives preloaded with software (U3 or portable apps) you have to install before you can use your drive. SCLS supported patron PCs do not allow this kind of software to be installed, which is why we chose the Kingston Data Traveler. The Kingston Data Traveler has a 5 year warranty and boasts 10 years of data retention.
