ADVICE


From Faith Carpenter
Librarian, Mount Mansfield Union High School

"We circulate 4 iPads here at MMU and they are our most popular item. They go out overnight and we do not circulate the charger with them. They each come in a leather case for protection. Our technology department password protects them and handles all of the apps (they'll put apps on at our request). Students are required to have a permission form signed by parents to check them out (and it applies to all of our technology). I have designated one of my assistants to "manage" them."
