Report On Hand Scanners in UMaine Dining Halls

The Bangor Daily News has a report on the hand scanners, installed last semester, in several UMaine dining facilities. The scanners were installed to keep costs down and eliminate the sharing of MaineCards, a practice that can cost UMaine up to $4,100 per card, the price of a meal plan for an academic year, according to Director of Auxiliary Services Dan Sturrup and Director of Dining Operations Kathy Kittiridge, who were both interviewed for the story. The website Third Factor, which covers news and insights into biometric identification and authentication, also ran the story.
