We have been operating a pilot program of 25 netbooks for two years and it has been very successful. The computers are used in our classroom for instructional purposes and also checked out to students for use in the library. Since most of our instruction is computer based, it is valuable to students to have hands-on experience with the resources while the librarian is present. The current pilot program will expire in 2012 and the computers will need to be replaced with a tablet computer (such as an iPad). We have received a matching grant for half the cost and need to generate the remaining funds. One tablet is $600.
