MPAL has iPads that can be checked out by anyone with a faculty/staff/student iCard.

These iPads have several restrictions put on them for security reasons (yours and the Library's). We also erase all content and settings when they are returned, so you don't need to worry about personal information being stolen. 

We'd like your feedback about how useful the iPad was and whether any of the current settings made the iPad less useful for you. You can fill out our brief feedback form when you return one, or, you can send an email and share your thoughts.
