    "Setting up a library iPad program
    Guidelines for success"

    We setup an iPad loaning program at Buffalo State College. Similar to what Briar Cliff did, but we decided to keep the iPads open to users. We restore them to factory default and let the individuals setup their own account.

    We've discussed the options of loaning tablets, iPads specifically but we always get stuck on the logistics. Briar Cliff seems to have opted for a more conservative approach, I would imagine our IT department would be more accepting of doing it this way. Has Buffalo encounter any challenges with leaving the settings on the iPad open?

    No major issues so far. Some users needed assistance with the initial setup process and purchasing apps, but each person was free to use the iPad the way they wanted to. When they create their Apple ID account, all the purchased apps are tied to that account, including the free ones. They can also take advantage of the iCloud backup feature so they can restore their settings when they borrow another iPad. Most users I've talked to are using the loans to decide if they want to purchase their own, including faculty and staff.

    I now have it in my mind to create something like this for information literacy! Perhaps using screencasting and having students make critical choices in a sample research process that can then show them the outcomes of various strategies, from topic choice to searching to paraphrasing and writing.

Library usage and final grades - "Self-plagiarism is style" - 0 views

  • In terms of visits to the library, there's no overall correlation — the average number of visits per student ranges from 109 to 120 — although we do seem some correlation at the level of individual courses. What does this tell us (if anything)? I'd say it's evidence that the library is for everyone, regardless of their ability and academic prowess.
