New Adventures: Circulating iPads from Your Library

Friday, July 12th, 2013

New Adventures: Circulating iPads from Your Library
Wednesday, July 17 from 2 – 3:30 pm

by Dolores Fidishun, Ed.D., Head Librarian at Penn State Abington College and Penn State Great Valley

Description: Do you have an iPad? Do your patrons have them? Would you like to be able to add them to the list of services your library offers? This session will discuss the pros and cons of circulating iPads and will share our experiences in signing them out to undergraduate students at Penn State Abington. What policies and procedures do you need to put into place? How do you keep them secure? Do you really get them back and what happens if someone breaks one? Learn from both our fun and our challenges. Bring your questions and your ideas about how this popular technology can be integrated into your library.

Free Registration:
Instructions for joining the program will be emailed to registrants. Participants will watch and listen in Adobe Connect, with the ability to ask questions via chat.
