Flipcharts are no longer bookable through the IT Teaching Support Team. Flipchart stands have been permanently installed in a selection of teaching and meeting venues - see individual room pages for details, and also note that 'Flipchart Stand' is now a searchable object within Web Room Bookings. Schools are required to bring their own flipchart pens. Paper should be available in the rooms. There are spare flipchart pads available at Dalhousie reception desk. If more is needed, contact the Estates & Buildings helpdesk (88181).
