The Central Stores is the place where phased-out computers go. It is like a bone yard for old machines. Central Stores has a staff that tests all equipment that is no longer needed in circulation. They properly dispose damaged or destroyed electronics. Anything that still functions adequately goes up for sale to students, faculty, and staff. Even though the equipment and computers being sold at Central Storage are old, they can be useful purchases in a pinch.
