iPads in the Music Library: Harmony or Dissonance?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Loanable technology in libraries is not a new phenomenon and libraries have for many years made laptops and other items available to students and faculty for their research and class projects. However, tablets are a newer technology that presents new challenges for libraries wishing to loan them to patrons. This article explores the process by which one music and performing arts library implemented a loanable iPad program. Issues regarding setup, device control and management, applications, marketing, and circulation procedures, policies and problems are presented and discussed.
