We're foolishly thinking about resubmitting our CCLI for an NMR here at JSD, and was wondering if any of you had any knowledge or experience regarding the description of NMR useage? Normally, at a big school, they have 24/7 use expectations, and they also have excellent computer records of who used what when. We have.....bupkus. People just use it as they please. Have any of you run into this, and if so, how do you estimate useage? Do you assume 8 hour or 24 hour days (since we don't expect our students to work at night when we are here, unlike our kindly mentors in grad school)?
Also, on another note, do any of you have an instrument technician, or does this fall to the faculty?
Finally, if anyone has any experience or suggestions on CCLIs for NMRs, please don't feel that you need to leave to us the valuable learning experience of acquiring such knowledge the hard way....do tell (:
