Who can check out iPads?
All Penn students, faculty and staff are eligible to borrow the iPads. The first step is completing the reservation form. Guests and other affiliated borrowers without valid Penn IDs are not eligible.
Where do I go to check out an iPad?
iPads will be available for check out from the circulation desk at Fisher Fine Arts Library. All devices are identical (64GB iPad2 Air) and have the same content pre-loaded onto them.
How long can I keep an iPad?
iPads can be borrowed for 7 days (1 week). iPads must be returned in person to the circulation desk from where they were checked out. Do not return them using the book drop boxes. The borrower is responsible for any loss or damage to device while in his/her possession.
How will I know if an iPad is available?
You can check Franklin to see which devices are available.
What are the fines and fees for overdue, lost or damaged iPads?
Fines will apply for overdue iPads ($25/day with no maximum). Items not returned in 10 days will be considered lost and a bill for replacement (of $600.00) plus standard processing fees ($50.00) will be issued. You must check your account via Franklin to be reminded of the due date.
Can I download any apps to the iPad?
Borrowers may download apps to the device using their own iTunes account. These apps however, will not be permanently retained on the device and will be removed when the device is returned. If you'd like a particular app to be purchased, please contact us with the recommendation.
What if I left any documents or information on the iPad?
The borrower is responsible for deleting any personal information that may have been added to the device while in his/her possession before the device is returned. All data and apps from the previous user will be deleted when the iPad is returned to the Library. The Library is not responsible for anything you load or leave on Library equipment.
