"iPads" in the Library Guidelines & Recommendations
As part of the "iPads in the Library" grant program, participating librarians are participating in the companion "iPad Mobilary" program to create a body of guidelines and recommendations for the use of iPads in the library. The purpose of this program is to document a range of best practices for using this mobile device to most effectively meet students' research, information, and recreational reading needs through modern, 21st century library programs.
