Pierce College now has iPads available to students at both the Puyallup and Fort Steilacoom campus libraries.
The iPads come preloaded with a variety of apps to help students with library research, homework and other academic purposes, said library faculty member Emily Wood.
Four iPads are available for checkout at the Puyallup campus and three are available at Fort Steilacoom. Students can borrow from the libraries’ borrow desk/circulation desks for a one-day loan period.
“These iPads provide students with an opportunity to access library resources on the go and also gain hands-on experience using mobile devices,” Wood said in a campus email.
Students only can borrow these iPads, which were purchased with student technology fee funds. Faculty and staff may use them in the library. To learn more about how they work and the academic apps available to students, stop by the library.
Each iPad 2 comes with a smart cover, a power adapter/cord, a carry bag and a Wi-Fi guide.
