iPads and Sufaces

Beginning in January 2015 we have ten iPad Mini 3s available for checkout.

In July 2015, two Microsoft Surfaces were added.

iPads are being provided to facilitate use of library resources and help faculty, staff, and students become familiar with mobile, tablet technology that can be particularly useful in clinical settings.

For a complete list of installed apps, see this page.
