eReaders and Mobile Devices for Check-out

Todd Vandenbark

e-Readers: Kindle, Nook, iPad, Xoom

The Library recently purchased a number of eReaders and mobile devices for faculty and students to check out and try before purchasing. They include:

  • Apple’s iPad (3 available)
  • Motorola Xoom (3 available)
  • Amazon Kindle (6 available)
  • Barnes and Noble Nook (3 “1st Edition” and 3 color)

Eccles Library staff and faculty demonstrated each of the devices at our September LIFT Forum (see earlier blog post), after which attendees had the opportunity to try the devices.

These devices come pre-loaded with software and eBooks for patrons to peruse. Are you considering purchasing one of these devices? Or are you just curious about them? Stop by the Library and check one out today. And then come back and tell us what you think!
