August 17, 2015 at 4:03 pm | Posted in news | Comments Off on Ten iPads Available to Borrow

ipadGalvin Library, in cooperation with the Office of Technology Services (OTS), has ten (10) new iPad’s available to check out to students, faculty, or staff who have a current library account in good standing.  Your IIT HawkCard (which is your library card) must be presented to the staff at the circulation desk on the lower level each time an iPad is borrowed. The Loan Agreement must be read, signed and submitted each time an iPad is borrowed.  The loan period is 3 days and there is one 3 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.This service is not available to alumni, consortium members or other affiliated users.

  • Each iPad comes with the default applications.
  • To download applications, you will need an iTunes account.
  • 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 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.
