September 10, 2002 I am surprised to hear about the poor customer service your received. I have always had positive interactions. Anyway, it is expensive. It is about $1500 to $2000 per station for the PLATO library. We made an investment years ago in 11 licenses. If we maintain our network license @ $150 annual fee per station), we can purchase the web nodes at a reduced price ($300 per node). It may be that you will need to access a grant for the intial seed money.

If so, how do you afford it? The woman I dealt with was very hostile.
