This is indeed an unfortunate situation but I know that we are not alone
in colleges in the Uk or indeed in the States.
Many institutions are forced dowown this road for lack of funds/space
For those who do not know - the health hazards are hearing loss caused
by listeneing too long and too loud.
Kevin - I don't understand the relevance of administrative support??
My query was primarily aimed at people in other institutions who found
themselves in a similar situatio- as to how they were dealing with it.
Is there anyone else with the same or similar problem on the list??
