The Division of Interpretation and Education is moving away from traditional photographic slide use and into the digital realm of Powerpoint. To that end we are surveying the majority of our traditional slide equipment including projectors, slide trays, dissolve units, etc. While we will expand our ability to assist other divisions with their digital media needs, our ability to support traditional slide shows will be greatly reduced. Should you wish to maintain your own stock of traditional slide equipment, you will be able to acquire our surveyed equipment for a limited time by contacting Raye Santos. (T. Medema – 12/20/04)

Protection added to land near Yosemite
