iPad program

Falconer Biology Library has four iPads (third generation) available to check out for two weeks. Please check availability using SearchWorks.

The iPads have Wi-Fi, 9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen Multi-Touch display with IPS technology, 5-megapixel iSight camera with autofocus, dual-core Apple A5X custom-designed, high-performance, low-power system-on-a-chip with quad-core graphics, and 64GB storage. USB cable and power adapter are provided together with the iPad.

The iPads circulate for two weeks, and may be renewed once. They are due by 5 pm on the due date. Please return iPads to a staff member at Falconer Library's circulation desk; do not return them to another library or put them in a library drop box. Overdue fines accrue at the rate of $15 per day. If an iPad is overdue for more than two days, the borrower will be charged a replacement fee and a non-refundable processing fee.
