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.
