Borrowing an iPad
The Digital e @ MUSC Library service allows students, staff and faculty to borrow an iPad or other mobile device for 7 days. Each iPad has a variety of clinical and productivity apps installed on them. Many of the productivity apps are paid apps so you can "try before you buy" for your own device.
Interested in checking out more than one for a class session? Inquire at the Loan Desk for details. We currently have a total of 10 iPads available for check-out.
