And one of the servers manages the bookings, printing and photocopying from the same public internet network. The other one makes phone calls to borrowers telling them of overdues or reservations.

I think I need a UPS. Management thinks otherwise.
I think you need one too — sounds like a great example of what they are designed for.

What would it cost to do what you want? Would it break the bank (i.e., show up as a line item on the annual budget)?
