Ben's Attic Spring Cleaning - Friday, April 15, 2022


Ben's Attic Spring Cleaning

If you have office supplies, lab supplies, furniture, electronics (other than computers), or miscellaneous supplies or equipment in your area that you are not using, but think others in the University may have a need for, now is the time to list them on Ben's Attic. For a limited time during the month of May, I will come to your area and collect information, photograph your items, and then list them for you on Ben's Attic for all faculty and staff to see. Email me at before May 15th to schedule an appointment.
