When Ben Franklin founded America’s first lending library, the predecessor to free public libraries, he undoubtedly had no clue how technology would intersect with shelves lined in pen-and-ink resources. As of 2012, CFgear has helped meet the technology needs of a number of libraries—a fairly high number, actually: 350 and counting. From small local libraries to the Library of Congress, we’ve helped meet needs for custom library flash drives from sea to shining sea.

Even if you’re not a librarian, understanding the reasons our custom USB flash drives are helping meet the needs of these institutions might shed some light on how they can benefit your business, nonprofit organization, or special interest group.

Library Challenges

People don’t just go to the library to borrow books or utilize hard copy resources anymore. Many people use technology resources they don’t otherwise have available. Other than printing out information, many are at a loss of how to save the information they find. Of course, libraries can’t allow all customers to save files onto their computers, particularly due to security concerns and practical storage limitations. Many libraries do have CD or floppy disc drives, but there are problems with both of those options. Between compatibility and availability, the issues libraries face with both CDs and floppy disc drives have been never ceasing. continue

While many teachers can probably imagine the many ways that bulk flash drives can decrease their work loads and help students streamline projects, USB flash drives can benefit absent students, as well.

Many students miss school due to illness, leave early for extracurricular events, and occasionally miss class for other reasons. Some students have special needs that make them home-bound for long periods of time. Such situations often require teachers to collect classwork, write lengthy explanations of requirements, and print extra sets of notes. Sometimes, teacher descriptions end up being less-than-legible, hand-scrawled notes hurriedly penned between classes.

Even when legible and thorough documentation is sent home, students lack the full benefit of being part of the class lecture or discussion. When students are faced with the hodgepodge of packets from each teacher, it can be overwhelming and difficult to wade through. Sometimes, negative results include lower grades or even dropping out. continue

Parties come and go. They mark milestones and share memories. From birthday celebrations to baby showers, favors are great reminders of the memories and times shared together with friends and family. Depending on the event, it can be difficult to find a favor that accommodates everyone at the party. The host should have a universal favor that all attendees can enjoy. Customized USB drives are a personal and universal gift for everyone at the event.

While bags of jelly beans or personalized tea candles are common favors at parties, the candy is often gone before the event is over and the knick-knacks are thrown into a junk drawer. Give your guests a meaningful and useful gift with a personalized USB flash drive. The flash drive can be preloaded with a special message, photographs, or any other memorabilia that would be relevant to the guests. The USB drive can be customized with the party date, theme, graphic or logo, or even a thank you message. continue
