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. Students may checkout an iPad for a four-hour period while in the library. Approximately 50 apps have been loaded on the Library's student iPads. Borrowers will not be able to add new apps, however, the library is requesting student and faculty input regarding app additions.  

iPads are available on a first come, first serve basis from the Hardin Valley Library's Circulation Desk and the Blount, Magnolia, and Division Street ERC desk, for a 4 hour check out for use in the Library/ERC only.
