iPads are tablet devices that are built by Apple Inc. All iPads run iOS, which is a touch based operating system that runs on both iPads and iPhones.
The library's iPads currently run the latest version of iOS 8.
iPads come with a basic set of applications, called apps, including a web browser, basic word processor, and calendar. Other apps can be purchased from Apple's App Store.
The library is offering 10 iPad devices for Merrimack College students, faculty, and staff to borrow.
iPads are available on a first-come, first serve basis and loaned for 5 days. iPads can be placed on hold. iPads cannot be renewed. iPad chargers are also checked out with the iPad.
iPads come pre-loaded with a variety of apps for research, entertainment, music, news, productivity, and social networking.
