iPad Lending Fall 2013

This semester the library will pilot an iPad lending program. Students will be able to borrow iPads for 4 hours at a time. We hope this program will provide you with your technology needs.

Please visit the Circulation Desk. Fill out the lending form and read the terms of agreement and have the desk attendant complete the form and you'll be on your way!

Limited quantity of iPads are available and lending is based on first come, first serve


  • Only current faculty, staff and students may check out iPads. Patrons must have a valid library account in good standing and must read, agree to, and sign the iPad Loan Agreement.
  • The iPad Loan Agreement must be read and signed each time an iPad is borrowed. Only one iPad can be checked out per person. Under no circumstances will a user be allowed to check out an iPad for another person.
  • iPads can be checked out from the Samuel C. Williams Library circulation desk during regular operating hours. The loan period is 4 hours within the library for students, faculty, and staff.
  • iPads are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. The Samuel C. Williams Library cannot guarantee that an iPad will be available. iPads can be renewed only if there is no one waiting for an iPad. Borrowers must check at the desk to at the end of their loan period to see if they can renew.
  • All iPads must be returned to the Library circulation desk during regular operating hours.
  • A $5.00 late fee per hour (not to exceed $25 per day) will be assessed if the iPad is returned past its due time. Fines will be recorded on the borrower's library record and may result in borrowing and registration restrictions.
  • The working condition of the iPad will be assessed before checkout and upon its return. Users are responsible for damage to and/or loss or theft of loaned units. Users are required to report any problems experienced with the iPad during their borrowing period.
  • The replacement cost for a lost, stolen, or damaged iPad is $600. A charge of$40.00 will be assessed for each lost power cord and adapter; $50 for a lost case. Damage charges will be assessed based on the actual repair costs. If an iPad is 3 days overdue, it is considered lost or stolen, and the borrower will be charged for its replacement

iPads available for checkout have 16gb of storage and are equipped with WiFi. iPads come with preloaded sample files and applications, but users may sync additional data and applications, with the understanding that all data will be wiped and replaced with the standard preloaded files and apps when the iPad is returned to the Samuel C. Williams Library. Any additional apps or media purchased by the borrower during the loan period must be done with the borrower's own funds, and is not the responsibility of the Library. Any data or documents saved to o the iPad by the patron during the loan period will be permanently erased during the restore process.
