TI Award: Laptop Loan Program
Technology Improvement Award: The Medical Library of the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine (OCPM) is seeking funding to begin a Laptop Loan Program. Two laptop computers will be purchased for students to checkout and use in the Library as a means of offering access to the institution's collection of health information, such as full-text books and journals, and Medline databases. Medical school education benefits from the ability to utilize current technology, such as Internet databases, software applications and email. The OCPM Library would like to provide an alternative for students to access these technologies.
