iPads Temporarily Unavailable for Check-Out

Brown Library's collection of 20 iPads are being updated and will be temporarily unavailable for check-out this week. A few new apps will be downloaded to them, including the newest versions of Blackboard Mobile, Blackboard Collaborate, and Khan Academy. The iPads will become available again during the week of October 22.

What? You have iPads??

Yes! Once the updates are complete, current students only (and faculty and staff) are welcome to check out an iPad for two hours at a time, to be used within the library. Close to 200 apps are currently loaded and ready to go, including Blackboard, math and science video tutorials, a medical abbreviations app, Art Authority (with over 55,000 different paintings and sculptures), Evernote, Adobe Photoshop Express, The White House’s official app, Living Language (in Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Chinese), multiple eReaders, and shortcuts to both Virginia Western’s and the library’s websites. These are just a few of the incredible apps we have available.

For more information on how to check out an iPad, ask us at the Reference or Circulation desks, or take a look at our Technology Circulation page. We look forward to seeing you soon!
