Hi Jacqueline

We have been using PC Reservation from Envisionware for several years and
works very well

Each day you can set the opening and closing times as well as designate
areas(Reference, 2nd floor)
You can send different warning messages (Computers shutting down in 5
mins), you're talking too loud, etc.) from staff computers including
shutting down a computer or two.

The system will work off your ILS system patron module so you can block
patrons with overdues or other violations from using the computers.

There are  consortium and education pricing, but you will have to check
with Envisionware.

There is also the print management system called LPT1 you might interested
in.   We have had  itfor a year
and has eliminated print queues, wasted paper, etc.   Installed coin box
on printer.

If you need more info, please let me know
