Library Tablets Overview

Purpose

The tablets were purchased to promote information literacy efforts and to increase access to the library’s ebook collection. Tablets are available to take outside of the library for use at home and in the classroom. As more and more classes are utilizing technology, apps, and other online materials, we want ACC students to have access to tools necessary in today’s modern classroom.
   All ACC Libraries are CLOSED to walk-in users. However, as of Monday 3/30/20, regular hours have resumed for LIVE ONLINE SERVICES.  
Austin Community College Library Services wants to reassure ACC students, faculty and staff that they will NOT be charged late fines for items NOT returned at this time. Visit our Library Information and Services during COVID-19 Guide for the most up to date information and announcements.
