How Do Librarians Use iPads

This week (and part of next) I am in jury duty.  Thankfully the jury pool room has free wifi so I have been able to keep up with the online world a bit (If my laptop battery lasts, there are precious few electrical outlets). 

This morning I received an email from another librarian asking me how I use an iPad as a librarian.  Well, I don’t have an iPad.  I am saving up for one when the iPad 3 comes out.  So a lot of the ways I would use an iPad are still just guesses for me. 

So I posted the question on the iMedicalApps forum, “How Do Librarians Use iPads.”  My hope is that librarians with iPads will answer how they use their iPad in the job and how it is a better tool or solves a need that previous tools (laptops, desktops, smartphones, etc.) didn’t.
