This morning I posted on iMedicalApps.com the article, “Don’t have an iPad, go to the medical library and borrow one.” There are lots of medical libraries loaning iPads out to their patrons and this post was a way to highlight to physicians some of the ways libraries are helping them get connected using iPads.
In my research I discovered that there are A LOT of medical libraries doing this, too many to list in the actual article. So in order to have a more comprehensive list of libraries loaning iPads I thought it would be a good idea to create a comprehensive list of libraries who loan them and post it on the iMedicalApps forum. So if you library loans iPads, list it on the forum with your basic rules and some of the popular apps loaded. Remember keep it short and sweet with not to much library geek jargon, we want it to be easy for docs and medical professionals to scan through and look at it.
Interested in the geeky library details? Don’t worry, I will posting in the next few days the librarian version of the iMedicalApps article. This will have the information that librarians interested in starting their own iPad loaning project will want to know about.
