by Professor Valerie Forrestal, Web Services Librarian

Currently enrolled College of Staten Island students may borrow an iPad for use in the library for a period of two hours. iPads can be checked out from the Library Technology Support Center in room 109A on the 1st floor of the library.

Aside from the usual apps on the iPad, they are also pre-loaded with the following additional apps:

  •     Dropbox
  •     Google Earth
  •     Google Translate
  •     Kahn Academy
  •     Microsoft Word
  •     Microsoft Excel
  •     Microsoft Powerpoint
  •     NY Times

Users are welcome to download apps with their own iTunes account, but these apps will automatically be removed from the device when it is checked back in.

Please feel free to provide us [at the Technology Support Center] with suggestions for apps that you find useful for courses that should be one of the pre-loaded apps. Any app that will increase efficiency and productivity are welcome.

Borrowers must have a valid CSI ID card to use one for either 4 hours or 3 days. iPads must be returned in the same condition as when it went out. Users assumes all responsibility and will be liable for any damage to iPad while checked out in your name.

Please note that if a borrowed iPad is damaged or lost, the borrower will be held responsible for the repair or replacement cost of the iPad. For example, if an iPad is returned with a cracked screen, the borrower is subject to a $49 screen repair fee. Unpaid fees will result in loss of library privileges at CSI and CUNY.
