Laptops to Go: A Student Assessment of a Library Laptop Lending Service
Summey, Terri; Gutierrez, Art
Journal of Access Services, v9 n1 p28-43 2012
Approximately five years ago, the library at Emporia State University started a laptop lending service to provide laptops for use in the library. The program has been highly successful. In the last few years, some modifications were made to the program, and netbooks were added. In this article, the authors will explore laptop programs in a variety of library settings, present details on the ESU Libraries laptop lending service, and discuss the results of a student satisfaction survey. Finally the authors present what the library faculty and staff have learned and potential future modifications to the program. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
