Galvin Library, in cooperation with the IIT Idea Shop, has two iPad 2 devices available to check out to students, faculty, or staff who have a current library account in good standing. Your IIT HawkCard must be presented to the circulation staff each time an iPad is borrowed and the Loan Agreement must be read, signed and submitted each time an iPad is borrowed. More information about opening a faculty or staff library account can be found here.
Each iPad comes with the default applications. Connect the iPad to your computer and use iTunes to set up, register and sync content. Any additional apps or media purchased by you during the loan period must be done with your own funds, and is not the responsibility of the Library. The apps will be available via your personal iTunes account and can be downloaded again when needed.
The loan period for a tablet is three days and there is one three day renewal permitted, but the renewal can only be done in person at the library circulation desk, so figure that into your borrowing time. iPads are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
The working condition of the iPad will be assessed before checkout and upon its return. You are responsible for damage, loss or theft of the loaned unit. Information about replacement costs for damaged or lost iPads is on the Loan Agreement form. You can get additional assistance with the iPad at the OTS Support Desk on the upper level of the library.
