Spearheading the Transition to iPads in the Medical School Curriculum at the University of Rochester

The Library proposes to purchase iPads and associated software and accessories for the librarians, technology support staff, and e-Learning staff to the Library. Hands-on experience and training in iPad technology will extend the knowledge base of those librarians and staff and prepare them to support the customers of the Library in their use of these mobile devices. In particular, the library is preparing for the planned 2012 rollout of iPads to first-and second-year medical students. These devices will be purchased and loaded with resources and apps that are deemed necessary for enhancing the students? learning and information seeking.
