iPad 2 - CHECK AVAILABILITY

ipads

 

The Truax library has 8 iPads that are available on a first-come first-served basis by currently enrolled students. Some of the devices are available for in-library use only; others are available for 1 week checkout.

We have attachable keyboards available for the ipads.

iPad lookup stations

We have iPads at the end of some of our book shelves at the Truax Library. You can use these to quickly search for an item. Jot down the call number which will help you locate it on the shelves. If you have questions, ask a librarian.
