iPads for Students
The Pellissippi State Community College Library, using TAF money, has purchased 11 iPad Wi-Fi tablet computers for student use only. There are five iPads at the main campus library and two at each site campus ERC. On a "first come, first serve" basis, students may checkout an iPad for a four-hour period while in the library. Initially, the iPads will be loaded with a variety of apps, and borrowers will not be able to add new apps. However, the library is requesting student and faculty input for adding more apps. See the feedback box to the right.
