Ipads and Wireless Laptops
The library offers the following alternatives to desktop computers.
iPads can be checked out for use within the library for up to 3 hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. iPads must be returned by 5 pm.
On an iPad, you can read your email, surf the web, try out mobile versions of the library’s catalog and other resources; view a movie, play games for stress relief, work on a document with the PAGES app, or read books (we have free ones downloaded).
For questions or suggestions regarding the iPad loan program, please contact Michael Cabus, Systems Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Faculty and staff can obtain longer-term (out-of-library) iPad loans through the Office of Information Resources. Contact the Help Desk at HelpDesk@philau.edu (x4OIT).

The laptops have all regular lab computer software as well. Here are the key facts.
- We have eight Lenovo PCs
- The loan period is three hours
- The laptops are available during our regular operating hours, but must be returned one hour before closing
