Mobilizing Knowledge Resources: iPad Use by Hospital Clinicians

The availability of handheld computing devices has increased over the past several years, and adoption of these devices has become increasingly widespread. At Pennsylvania Hospital, as elsewhere, librarians and other information professionals are challenged to stay abreast of new devices, in order to support the clinicians who use them. The NN/LM MAR Technology Improvement Express Award would be used by the Pennsylvania Hospital Library to purchase 10 iPad devices (iPad2, 16 GB, Wi-Fi enabled), half of which would be used by library and other information professionals at the hospital, and half of which would be loaned out to clinicians to support their professional information needs.
