The Sherman Fairchild Library was specifically funded with an eye to providing up-to-date services, including those on the leading edge of changes in the scholarly information world. Over the years, SFL has introduced circulating laptops, a computer commons, and kept the technology in the Group Study Rooms cutting edge. Our newest experiment is circulating hardware. We are seeking to investigate the utility of these devices in fulfilling our mission to support research and education.
Apple iPads, Kindles, and Flip Cameras are available for students to check out. Kindles will circulate for 3 days. iPads and Flip Cameras will circulate for 24 hours. For more information: http://libguides.caltech.edu/edevices.
If you would like to suggest a book for the Kindles or an app for the iPads, please contact email us.
