You asked.
We Listened!

Rice Library is happy to annnounce the arrival of iPads for check out, beginning March 4th, to currently enrolled students. This new acquistion is made possible through the generous support of the Information Technology Department.

Present your Eagle Access card at the Checkout counter to try out an iPad. The iPads will check out for one week, so yes, you may leave the library with them.

There is a limited quanitity, 40. So if on your first attempt you are unable to get an iPad, please be patient.

Before returning the iPad to the library, please take a moment to fill out a survey about your experience and suggestions for additional apps that you think would be helpful to your fellow students. Click the graphic to the right to access the survey
or use the bookmark on the iPad itself.
