Borrow an iPad from Dana Medical Library

Dana has two iPad2s and two iPad Airs available for check out.

Who can borrow an iPad?

UVM students, faculty and staff.

How long can I keep an iPad?

Loans are for one week. iPads may be renewed for an additional checkout period if no other user has requested its use. In order to renew, you must call the Circulation desk at 656-2200 or stop by and request an extension before it is due. Late return of an iPad will result in immediate fines of $10.00 per day and will block borrowing privileges; fees may be assessed and loss of iPad borrowing privileges may result.
