The list is great but I think you missed a really important one. The Help Desk @ the Zone. Students, faculty, or staff member can stop in for assistance with a personal device, checkout equipment, print, and ask for technology advice.

See http://oit.boisestate.edu/classroomlabtech/classroom-and-lab-technologies/welcome-to-the-zone/ for full details.
