iPads for Students


Always check to be sure that you have completely logged out of any website requiring personal data, and removed all personal information from apps, documents, websites, etc.  iPads do not delete personal data when checked back in to the library!


Use of iPad is at your own, personal risk. See PSCC Computer Policy.

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.



Approximately 120 apps have been loaded on the Library's and ERCs' student iPads.  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.
